Sure arch supports directory renames. The thing that you are unhappy
with is instead that tla supports directory renames by performing a
delete/add pair for each file that was moved across directories.

I didn't look into the code to answer this, but you'd probably have to
spend a bit of time in order to implement this change. One of the things
that would be required is setting up .arch-ids for each directory. Those
would naturally follow along when you mv'ed the directory. You could
then teach arch to look for those .arch-ids when it scans directories
under names-based mode.
