Yes, that's still a 1.2. :-(

If you screw up the URL, wget can only tell you 404.  Arch will tell
you whether the revision, version, category or branch was wrong.

Yes, but to be optimal, it should do that only in case of 404.

I agree. We can't do optimal today, but jivera is working on librifying libarch, and that will provide better error handling. For now, either we cat the log successfully, or we die. tla 1.2.1 and later cut out scanning categories, branches and versions, unless the revision doesn't exist, but we can't be optimal.

And I'd encourage you to try out 1.2.2rc1.  It sucks less(tm).
