We've had a disconnect.  I don't actually have a strong opinion about
Arch one way or the other, other than being somewhat dubious about its
maintainence status.  (Full disclosure: from personal experience with
Tom Lord, I consider him borderline insane and possibly committable --
but I also consider that to be almost irrelevant to the issue at hand,
as having bizarre semi-delusional episodes clearly hasn't stopped him
from writing good software occasionally.)

What I was bridling at was the implication that *CVS* should be recommended
over *Subversion* just because one comes off an FSF server and the 
other doesn't.
