Revision libraries are a solution for disconnected operations, not a
problem. Commands like "baz status", "baz diff" do not need access to
the archive if the revision library is filled in. If you need to be
able to commit offline, then branch in your local archive and merge
when you come back on the network.

Unless you have very limited disk space on your laptops, I'm pretty
sure you can afford to store revision libraries (configured with
--sparse --greedy). You'll just need to prune it from time to time (rm
-fr some revision directory, or use the script provided in tla-tools).
