No, the plan is to move only the GHC and testsuite repos to git, as the
others are also used by hugs, nhc98, etc.

It would be possible to move GHC's Cabal repo over too, as that is
private to GHC, but given the other libraries will be using darcs anyway
I think it is simpler to keep all darcs repos using the same VCS.
