You should be able to perform the equivalent operation with darcs 2.3,
but it won't be in-place:

darcs get <repo name> --hashed --complete <temporary repo name>
(copy over any prefs? I haven't tried this part)
rm -rf <repo>
mv <temporary repo name> <repo name>

It's that second step that might prove a bummer. CC'ing the darcs
mailing list in case I'm totally wrong.
