Yeah, I understand that. My point, OTOH, is that Emacs developers
probably don't want or need an additional freedom they're not going to
use, if the cost is a less stable, less well maintained or more complex

Of course, I'm not trying to speak on behalf of the Emacs developers
here, it's just a feeling. But, as the issue of enhancement value vs.
ease of maintaining is weighted once and again with respect to new
features and functionality, the same parameters can be applied to the
choosing of a VC tool. I'm *sure* there are lots of projects for which
arch is the right (or best) tool, much better than Subversion. I simply
don't see why should it be the case for Emacs.

I can well imagine it, and I'm looking forward to giving a fair try to arch,
when it is well supported on Windows and for the right projects.
