yeah, I was thinking I could compare time stamps of archive and
repo and remake archive if it is older. is there a particular repo
file that is best to check for timestamp update?

I'm still interested in the --clean-logs switch, what context is
it needed? I can't find anything other than in hotcopy help,
which doesn't actually explain, but assumes we know what are and
causes redundant log files. Do I have any? Do I ever need them?
