What is an archive in this context?  Is this a .tar.gz of a whole
remote repository in some random format (git, hg, bzr, remote svn)?

This is the issue that bothers me.  Using one DVCS would be great.
Using *every* DVCS at the whim of the egg maintainer is an invitation
to chaos.  And the "magic script" will in the nature of things only
support a subset of all the CVSes out there.
