        I think this is a good idea to have in the dev ref, if it is
 couched as a recommendation/ strong suggestion. The wording should be
 such that the two options for XS-VCS-Arch would be clearly stated:
|   a) If your Debian package lives in a single arch category, you may
|      give the arch location for the category:
|      srivasta@debian.org--etch/foo--devo--1.0 
|   b) If your package needs arch config files to compose the package
|      layout from multiple arch categories, use a grab file
|  In either case, baz get <contents of XS-VCS-Arch> should checkout the
|  latest version of your Debian package.

wasted the morning.
