It would be useful if some darcs 2 hackers, contributors could help the
ghc people evaluate if darcs 2 is still in the running. That would mean
identifying the key bugs (eg windows case-insensitive file bugs, slow
pulls) and seeing how hard they are to fix. Also doing a test conversion
to darcs 2 format and benchmarking some of the key operations described
on the ghc evaluation page.
