Arch has one drawback (IMO): The simplest user case is far too complex.
Arch solves problems which I don't have. My problems are being solved well enough by CVS, ATM. If Arch, or any other version control system, wants to be successful, it should try to scale with the needs of its users. If I want to version-control some code of mine, it should not be necessary to dig through 20 pages of wierd stuff that makes my brain spin, but is necessary to satisfy the needs of projects with 1000nds of contributors.
Well, just my 2 cents. I know that arch is great. It is just too much hassle.
