My silly suggestion would be for someone (especially one of the someones
who think that the single-file arch-id is a doubleplusgood idea) to make a
branch and implement the single file version of .arch-ids.

Then run some tests and *see* if the Darkly Hinted Efficiency Improvements
materialize.  Nothing convinces quite like hard data.
