I think the main point is that `centralized' is the easy case, and arch can
do that too.  If people want centralized, that's no problem -- but the
additional freedom of painless distributed development is a _significant_
advantage to arch.

[Perhaps this is not something that's entirely obvious if you've not used it
before, but it's wonderfully liberating.]
