from my part I don't care about a GUI or itla or anything, until cvsps
equivalent exists and works efficiently.

arch still lacks core features, from my point of view it's pointless to
add an interactive thing or a GUI until arch is more powerful than cvsps
and bitkeeper.

I would only recommend you not to force people not to make itla
mandatory for building tla, I'm not going to install guile in my system,
not a single package in my install requires that and I use pymacs to
emacs script.
