    The kernel config files will be moved *out* of the architecture
    specific directories and consolidated into a single generic
    subdirectory called /usr/src/sys/config.
    /usr/src/sys/<arch>/conf/BLAH -> /usr/src/sys/config/BLAH
Are you sure this is a good idea?  After all configs will be different between architectures.  (no ISA for sparc or so, don't know)

    I have already done the repo-copy to create /usr/src/sys/arch.  I
    am not going to move the rest of the files or hook any of it up until
    probably Tuesday or Wednesday, though, because I will likely be gone
    for two days and I don't want to break the build before I leave.
could you check and rename all old tags (from before the repo copy) to old_<tagname>?  otherwise those repo copied files also suddenly appear on the branches, for example

DragonFly_RELEASE_1_4 -> old_DragonFly_RELEASE_1_4
