I agree this needs fixing.  I think it makes more sense to force the
tempdir to be on the same filesystem, since that's where it will
ultimately be stored.  For instance, you'll get "Not enough disk space"
errors IFF there isn't enough space to store the converted tree (and the
Arch cruft) on the target filesystem.

Right now, I'm trying to convert the Arch branch as faithfully as
possible.  I think it would be misleading for there to be a different
number of revisions in the bzr branch.  I would be okay with an optional
start-from-here parameter-- would that suit you?
