I've used merge-order because it made sense... in that it gave me the
same history and order that walking the arch history would. Most of
the time, anyway, and decided that I'd rather trust GIT over Arch on
merging strategies...

If topo-order is sane, then I'll just change that. Let me run a couple
of tests with it first ;)

WRT SSL... archimport doesn't care a bit about SSL, and if it does,
it's a bug. It calls tla to perform all the "fetch stuff from the Arch
repo operations", because I was too lazy to implement native support
for reading the (trivial) repo format over all the transports. And
with Arch, access to the remote repos is _fast_ (unlike cvs).
