Arch (was Re: Warning to Debian Developers regarding BitKeeper)

Arch almost certainly isn't ready yet.  Attempting to set up a kernel
repository might well be useful in showing areas where performance
will be a problem.  

BitKeeper is clearly working for the kernel developers, and part of
that is presumably the nice merging tools and things that Arch simply
doesn't have.  So even if there were an Arch repository, people are
quite likely not to move to it, since BitKeeper is functionally
superior, at least at present.
