    * The rest of the backend support for simplistic experiment duplication,
      either from an existing (current) experiment, or from a specific
      archive revision of a current or terminated experiment.
    
    * Rework the swapmod code so that the archive is committed at the exact
      end of the swapout phase. This required adding (and moving) some code
      from swapexp to tbswap sine that is where the actual swapout/swapin
      happens during a swapmod
    
    * Add a special directory called "archive" to the experiment
      directory, which is a place where users can store stuff they want
      saved away. This will eventually be a user defined set of
      directories, but this was good for getting the basic mechanism in
      place. Note that the when the contents of this directory are copied
      out for placement into the archive, it is an exact copy made with
      rsync.
    
    * No longer "clean" the contents of the temporary store between
      commits of the archive. This was creating a lot of headaches, and
      was also causing the revision history to get messed up. The downside
      of this is that we have to be more careful to explicitly delete
      files that the user no longer uses. I have not solved all these
      issues yet, so in the meantime files will get left in the archive
      even if the user no longer references them.
