And what about schizofrenic people who have some projects using {arch}
and some using .arch?  And what about nested project trees, the check
would have to check for both directory names.  All this having a
multitude of options for something rather irrelevant is beyond me.  I
like seeing {arch}, it informs me that the directory tree is under
Arch's supervision and also that the {arch} directory is a bit special
and shouldn't be mucked about in too much.  I like hidden directories
and files, don't get me wrong - I'm just not sure there's a good reason
to make {arch} one of them.
