Ahh.  You are correct.  I noticed that you had a HaXml repository, and
believed that the copy in fptools was actually a converted-to-CVS
version of that.  In any case, I thought it would be unwise to have a
darcs repo without common history with the upstream darcs repo, so
indeed HaXml is just the fruit of "darcs get" from yours.

Re-converting now, since you've presumably committed patches to the
darcs side, is probably not going to be practical.
