... and it'd make a more efficient representation for .arch-ids pretty
trivial (the only real problem with doing it now being that it requires 
special diff/patch treatment).

Would it be easier/more-reliable to make dispatching specialized diff/patch
handlers based on the _id-tag_ rather than the filename (I'm thinking that
there may be places in the code where the tag is availabe, but the name is
not)?  The sort of special arch files being discussed here already have their
own special id-tag namespace, so ...
