There is though I've not tried it.
It surely works great on Mac OS X and *BSD.

As for portability, I have no problems believing you. As for
simplicity, I think that mileages vary a lot.  I had to write patches
to fit my needs indeed, and it's been pretty painful.  ;-)  But I'm
quite satisfied now that my itches have been scratched.

Anyway, this is not going to happen today or tomorrow since
fixing the "corrupt archive" was just a matter of deleting the
revision library and merging from my master archive (address@hidden).
Still, I'm looking for opinions.
