Accept, the above looks much better. if I make a new patch and submit,
will someone check it in? I have no write access.

>From my understanding after reading comments in vc.el (Adding support
for other backends), vc-backend-registered is implemented for the new
"backend". I did a grep and found only "arch" and "mcvs" implements
this. So, the fix is isolated to these two files.
