While I agree with this in general, I'm not sure it really applies to  
vcs (especially darcs) all that much. I don't think anyone who has  
ever worked with a vcs will need more than a day to learn how to use  
darcs (or any other sane vcs, for that matter). Really, the problem  
with darcs is not that it is not mainstream; rather, it's just that it  
simply doesn't work sometimes.
