I don't think that we do really support archimport. It's just that we
tend to leave things sitting around if they're not actively causing us
work, in the off chance that somebody might find them useful.

I'd be OK with declaring archimport dead and unmaintained, and dropping
it totally (I almost did so a few months ago when it _did_ cause me
extra work, because it contained a bunch of shell injections that I
turned up while auditing the whole code base).
