And not nearly as fast or useful. Ignoring speed and going for utility
value: The revlib isn't just there for use by arch itself; it's used
also by various users' add-on tools and scripts (indeed, any set of
tools capable of working on a bunch of files, not just tools that know
about Arch). This is one of the advantages of its existance as a
hardlink tree.
