Is the shudder over Tom, or arch ? If Tom, then I can understand ;]. If
arch itself - have you tried a recent version? I've found arch to be
incredibly useful, making some of the things I'd fought with CVS to make
happen trivial. (Notably disconnected work and local branches).

Could be. Mind you, I can't use bitkeeper (and don't want to). Hopefully
I won't start an incessant discussion if I mention that a) the licence
prevents me using it ( I've a side-project called barch, which is a C++
implementation of the arch logic) and b) the compulsory
public-visibility for 'free' use of it really sticks in my craw.
