It's stored in the .arch-ids in the directory itself.  I find that
odd, but it's no big deal, I guess.

I must admit it seems as much coincidence as design that directory
moving doesn't need "tla move".  I wouldn't have thought that changing
that would matter to anyone.

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see whether the tagline idea catches
on with other CM systems.  So far it seems restricted to arch.  (I'm
not quite sure why, since it seems a clever idea, at least for new
