Correct me if I'm wrong, but... I was under the impression that Darcs is 
a revision control system. It controls revisions.

Well Darcs already does that. So... what's to develop? It's not like 
it's slow or buggy. I can't actually think of any features it doesn't 
have that I want. So... what now?

In case that sounds really negative and critical, let me phrase it 
another way: Given that Darcs is more or less perfect now, what's to add?
