Wow.  Well, that is quite the constraint.  It would be a simple matter
to write a server that would let you use arch in something more like
"remote CVS mode" --- let you sync your working dir to a server-side
working dir or vice versa; let you run some arch commands server-side.

Yeah.  You're talking about such a severe space constraint that I
doubt core tla will ever address it.   But a couple-K LOC would
implement a server that would let you work in CVS mode.
