I usually archive throwaway ideas as patch bundles, instead
of complete repositories (darcs send -o some_feature.darcs).
Or just forget about the ideas and leave a repository lying 
around in my directory of working copies/repositories. I
never put throwaway branches in my directory of "archival"
repositories, which only contains major branches, and from
which I sync to distribution server with scripts to generate
static changelogs etc.
