Thanks, applied.

Other things we could do:

  1. Write the archive to standard output, for consistency with what
     happens with the nar format.

  2. Allow several items to be passed on the command line, as is the
     case with nar exports.  We might need to create a profile
     transparently for this to make sense, but then it becomes more than
     just an archive.
