Backup a second here:
You're altering the patch to not synthesize a tag. So users will have to
manually add a .id or a tagline for the .arch-inventory to be committed
to the archive.

If a) untagged-source precious is in use, and b) no tag has been
created, won't the .arch-inventory file in queston NOT get added to the
archive ? And won't it /still/ perform it's overrides during the
changeset creation?

Tla get on the result will then give you a tree that iimmediately fails
