The 'tla' implementation of arch indeed has windows issues. Until such a
time as there is an arch implementation which makes it safe for windows
users; there is nothing stopping someone else providing the same sort of
service in a different version control system.

The reason I suggested arch is because it provides a set of
functionality which I and several other people are interested in. It is
also gaining significant traction within the open-source community and
has a lot of time and effort invested in getting it better.

Also we can trivially mirror into a read-only CVS or something; and I am
not proposing to replace the tarball delivery mechanism currently in
place because that would be plain silly.
