In my mirror of address@hidden, I used archive-mirror with limits to
mirror tla--devo--1.3, but not tla--devo--1.2. With a greedy/sparse
library, a get of tla--devo--1.3 causes the following:

* ensuring library has address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3--patch-9
* searching ancestor revision in library in archive address@hidden
corrupt archive
  name: address@hidden
  location: /home/jason/arch/cache/address@hidden
  revision: tla--devo--1.2--patch-115

It would be nice if library-adding understood that a missing ancestor
revision may be due to a partial mirror, rather than a corrupt one, and
to stop searching for ancestors at that point. Not attempting to follow
continuations at all, as in the "avoiding ancestor scan" bug, might be
