I agree here.  I was drawn to arch because it could manage all the non-
source metadata I needed, like symlinks and (automatic) binaries, all
using time-honoured tools like tar and patch.

Of course, branching/merging and changesets made it a cake
smothered in icing.

I hope the attempts to simplify the help system will bring out point
number 3, which is likely lost on anyone who tries to get acquainted
using 'tla help'.
