Here are some other ideas.

OpenCM has an initially irritating feature that when you check out a
project, you need to specify a "-C <dir>" option, otherwise it checks
out into the current directory.  But actually it's a useful feature,
because the .opencm stuff (the equivalent of {arch}) goes in the
parent directory, so it's out of the way of the actual data.
Obviously that's harder with nested archives.  Perhaps impossible,
although I can imagine solutions that might work (I just haven't
thought them through).  It's a nice feature, especially while the
files in {arch} look like source files to things like grep.

A related idea is to move the .arch-ids directories.  I think they're
in the wrong place: if I'm using the explicit tagging method, then I'm
willing to tell arch about file and directory movements and things.
It can store that information wherever it wants, so I think it should
have the courtesy to keep it out of my source tree---I'm just not
interested in it.
