I disagree. I'm much more capable of remembering 
tla archive-mirror address@hidden \

Rather than 
tla archive-mirror address@hidden \

And actually, with a hook script like the following, I don't need to 
remember either of them. :) 


if [ -e /home/jblack/NOHOOK ]; then
  echo "Not hooking because of NOHOOK";
  exit 0;

case "$1" in
    case "$ARCH_ARCHIVE" in
        tla archive-mirror $ARCH_ARCHIVE > /dev/null &
        tla archive-mirror $ARCH_ARCHIVE $MIR2 > /dev/null &

Meh. Why is it both perl and python both refuse to have switch
statements? That is _so_ braindamaged.
