I volunteer to help test on MacOS X

Why don't we make the switch to darcs while we're at it?  Revision
control may be the least of our worries, but I think that darcs would
have been helpful specifically for our case  (multiple
revisions of my Unicode patch, Shelarcy's patches for Windows stuff,
Mac Makefile stuff, the new DB-related issues).

Keeping track of patch-on-patch-on-patch has gottten to be tricky.
Having a truly patch-oriented system would
1. make it easier for outsiders to submit modifications
2. make us more resistant to the busy-ness of our project leaders

So, should we go ahead and do this?  

Would hackage be the place to host this?  

How do we go about getting something set up on hackage?

I really don't mean to evangelise, but I was just getting sick of
keeping track of patches by hand.
