 We need support for arbitrary repo types, beyond just git. So something

 source: http://foo.org/code.git

 That is, an untyped url without information about what type of repo it is.

 '''Or''' we include type information about the source:

 source: http://foo.org/code.git
 source-type: git

 It shouldn't be constrained to just darcs, in any case. Besides darcs,
 probably the most common case is google code's svn repos, in fact.
