  Why doesn't arch assign the id based on the patch log fully qualified

I'm wondering why it isn't just

The issue is that as long as you keep the directory structure the same,
there is no difference. But if you want to move where files are stored
(as in what I'm trying to do), you have to leave the arch-id as the
original path-based name.

I'm doing that, but it doesn't *feel* like the correct thing. The id
shouldn't be caught up in a specific implementation of the arch protocol.
