And just to show that you can't make everyone happy ... I'll put in an 
equal-and-opposite vote  from Malcolm. GHC's use of darcs is a blocker 
for me even thinking about doing any work on GHC or the related 
libraries; my limited experience with darcs has been terrible, and the 
swearing I've heard about darcs makes me think my experience was not 
unique. Switching to git would make the chance that I'd do work on GHC
