Tla also has an option to mv file, which makes the changeset moving
something to old/ rather short and trivial.  Unlike CVS where the file
had to be removed from the original place -- and ended up in the Attic/
-- and then added to old/.

To keep old/ directory is actualy simpler with arch than with CVS and
makes more sense. Especialy since you can keep the file on your own
devel branch, but delete it on the release branch.
