Speaking as a raw *nix newbie, I disagree to a certain extent.

The goal of pushing obsolete "information" to the background is 
*VERY* good. Unless you have been recently through it, you can't 
imagine the grief caused by following an apparently logical path of 
inquiry path and then finding that something significantly changed 
at an unknown point in the past.

I don't know enough about the archiving system etc to suggest a 
better solution.
