I would contribute to darcs if only

It didn't already do exactly what I want it to.

As you've said darcs is really good for small-to-medium sized projects, particularly with few developers.
Those are exactly the projects I happen to be working on. For my work I use darcs on a slightly larger project but with (mainly) only one developer (me). So basically because darcs works perfectly for me I have pretty little motivation to dive into the source code and 'fix' something which for me simply isn't broken.
