Upfront, archive-POST_TYPE.php does not always resolve correctly - But considering the whole scope of things > Custom Post Type support is lacking in general / and such would be easy enough to bring the wordpress core up to the task / INCLUDING WIDGETS
I see no impedance to updating the core as to create a sensitivity that could handle ALL aspects of custom post types, once created, as the core handles posts, pages, attachments, menus - everything is there - we just need to open it a slight bit wider...
AND TA-DA - FULLY FUNCTIONAL & INTEGRATED CUSTOM POST TYPES THE MOMENT THEY ARE CREATED . . .
IF (wp community is) open to this idea / and time enough for inclusion in 3.2 > I'll submit code as needed.
here's a small pseudo taste:
default widgets, like Categories, Tag Cloud, Calender, ETC. run check for none built_in post types - when present & compatible > widget presents new option as to which post types it is desired to be used for...
-- i've already done (dev'ed) this / easy stuff here guys / and powerful > sure beats the current run around
