Certainly not everybody, of course.But there are some, me included.
I'd like to be able to use names without { and = in them as well, but without
having to complicate tla sources too much though.
How about having a configure time option to chose? Since working copies should
only be seen by the user they should accomodate their tastes if possible.
The only thing I don't like about arch is that the price paid for such a
transparent and powerful tool is the still relatively steep learning curve and
usabilty issues and these hardcoded assumptions play a role in the latter.

So I'll avoid implying that 'we' are majority or even many or representative
for the next waves of tla users but I personally would use it easier, and
might be even able to convert my two svn using colleagues ;)

OTOH I remember Andrea Arcangeli being thrilled by arch using {} because they
make the arch dir so prominent in whatever tool he was using.

Matter of taste.
