FWIW I believe the right way to go for itla, is to implement all the
lowlevel library calls as python C funtion/classes, and to control the
whole highlevel thing from python. so the tla you call from the shell
would be a python script not a C program. The cpu intensive thing (i.e.
gzip) won't be a python script of course. then itla will be basically a
python shell.

but really, I can't care less about those issues until arch isn't at
least nearly as good as cvs+cvsps and we've an import of the 2.5 cvs
into an arch repository at full granularity with >13000 changesets.
