Yes, it is a minor issue -- I mean what's with people getting all
bothered by what files underneath {arch} are called?  Surely you don't
edit =tagging-method more than once every couple of months, and do an ls
of that dir more than about twice a year?!?
Anyway, don't tell them it's for dir sorting, tell them the `=' avoids
namespace collisions for meta-info files (which it does).

[Though perhaps a better solution is just to wack them upside the head
and tell them to find something more productive to moan about...]

Fast, small, soon; pick any 2.
