Actually, the way I have been working is to commit changes to CVS
first, then to (forget to) propagate them into darcs.  AFAIK, the
two repositories are in synch right now, but if there is ever any
discrepancy, I always treat the CVS one as correct.

Thus, now would be an excellent time to re-convert, and I would
then throw away my own darcs repo and switch to treating the
darcs.haskell.org repo as the master.

I can't remember where the rest of the ghc conversion process has
reached - is it also about ready to switch over to darcs-as-master yet?
