changing to a

Archives contain the paths of those .id files. We can't change the representation of explicit without
a) breaking archive compatibility or
b) layering an alternate namespace on top of the filesystem.

An alterative would be another tagging method that worked the same way as explicit.

Anyone feel like starting a page on the wiki called
"Features for Archive format 2.0"?
