Correction: tla, an Arch frontend, has been orphaned upstream.  Most of the
interesting development work for the past 6 months or so has been on baz,
another Arch frontend.

Saying Arch has been orphaned upstream because of Tom Lord's announcement is
roughly similar to saying that Linux has been orphaned because the 2.0
kernel series is no longer maintained...

I'm quite confident that there will be an upgrade path from Arch archives to
bzr archives.  Canonical, amongst other people, have too much invested in
Arch to just let that history fester.  As for hct, I understand it is a
wrapper frontend to baz/bzr to provide the sorts of functionality that
package maintainers need, instead of being a general-purpose revision
control tool.
