I'm not sure. Tom Lord's personality leads me to think that Arch 2.0
will be about as long lived as the current incarnation and probably
suffer from similar maintainence problems. I would like to see "revc"
(as Arch 2.0 is called) in Extras, but I'm not sure that I'll have the
time to maintain the packages and have personally switched to using
bazaar anyway.

At the moment, I have no plans on importing revc, but that could change.
