Are you planning to implement that in a way similar to the IArchiver
interface? Like, say, having a REST-based equivalent for each of the
IArchiver's `list_url`, `permalink` and `archive_message` methods?

I think it would be nice if it worked more or less the same as the an
IArchiver class, not only on the implementation side but also as far as
the configuration is concerned. Although allowing multiple, potentially
slow-answering, REST-based archivers could be a trap performance-wise
(if those requests are not made concurrently).
