This is a great idea.

I have been thinking .... you know what would make
contribution to the library efforts even simpler? If they
were available in a Darcs repository.

Saying "darcs push" after you've spontaneously added a
three-line explanation into a standard library is a lot more
attractive than "cvs diff", cutting and pasting that diff
into an editor, and e-mailing it to the -libraries list.
(Who submits a diff for three lines of documentation?)

One of the reasons why Darcs is great is that it makes
submitting changes very simple for _everybody_.
