Given that a log file is completely unnecessary (you can use the

Sorting after everything else means that it prints right next to the
prompt, i.e. it prints where I'm looking which is rather silly since
I don't want to see it, usually.
Given all the discussions on the cvs-info list way back when it's hard to
believe that someone might come around and choose {arch} rather than say
.arch [ But then again, someone else chose MCVS even though he obviously
can't claim he knows nothing about CVS. ]

But if it was .arch, it would be automatically ignored by *, completion,
ls, ... i.e. it would *just work*.
