Thanks; that will make things a bit nicer for me.

I agree that it's ugly; arch currently treats everything on the line
following `arch-tag:' as part of the tag-- and that includes whitespace.

So if the comment was all one line, the _actual_ tag would be:


I think this behavior is dangerous because whitespace and comment
delimiters can get changed inadvertently, whereas users are more likely
to be careful about the actual tag string (which looks `magic').

I've posted a proposed solution to the gnu-arch-users mailing list, so
we'll see how that pans out.

80% of success is just showing up.  --Woody Allen
