No sir. You'll have to dive into both working trees, and commit both

The easy followup question is "why isn't arch smart enough to commit all
of them on its own" and the answer is "because arch doesn't know that
its in a multi-project tree"

Which then leads you to "So why don't we dump in {arch} a =config-root
file that records where the config is, and then commit all of those"

Which leads you down to....

anyways, it gets pretty messy real quick.
