What does this mean? It sort of sounds like you're talking about something that can be done with a hook.

  Conventions are so arbitrary, yet the ones arch uses

I do almost all of my coding on a mac with vim, via tcsh in a variety of programming languages (java, objective C, OCaml, python...stuff like that). It works pretty well for me most of the time. I do end up changing stuff for xcode projects (ignore pbxuser files and .DS_Store files), but I'm not sure what problems you're talking about (maybe I'm overlooking them?).

* Is there any reason that "mv" and "move" couldn't be the
  same thing (and let mv-id or an mv flag be the id mover)?

It does seem a bit unlikely that someone would want to move *only* a tag. I suppose the use case would be someone who moved something and forgot to move the tag, and would want to go back and move the tag. Then again, it might be just as easy to move the file back, or use an ``id only'' flag.
