One clean-room approach would be for an Archer to specify the API they
needed, and for a BK-clean user to write a library conforming to that

That's maybe too complicated. A simple shell script could retrieve
changesets one by one from BK and commit them in arch (this is my
impression after looking at the BK docs, but I've never used it).

That would work, but it would not track renames or retain commit logs. I'm not saying the API would be hundreds of functions long, but I think a more formal design process would produce better results. If it was done at all, which I have no investment in. I just find the ideas interesting.
