It might be worthwhile someone setting up a mirror from darcs->CVS to
keep the libraries CVS tree up to date, to help support these other
projects that aren't moving to darcs yet (or at all?).  

John Goerzen has told me that setting up a reverse mirror should be
possible, but not at all trivial - and I think he's already done his
fair share for the community by setting up the darcs mirror for fptools
:-)  So we're looking for a volunteer...
