Bidirectional compatability is unlikely.  The changes I have made to
the archive and patch format for things like arbitrary branch depth
(e.g.,13), i18n, generalized tags, properties, and
efficient binaries are rather dramatic.  I implemented cryptographic
checksums and mirroring differently, and I got rid of the implicit and
names inventory methods.  I am sure that I am forgetting some other
things as well.  Tla and/or baz would have to improve a lot for me to
consider any compatibility.
