...and then he discovers that Darcs isn't working any more. :-(

I've recently reinstalled Windows, so I decided to go download the 
latest Darcs and set that up. Now it's complaining that I don't have 
curl or wget. (Never used to do that before.) The WindowsConfiguration 
file doesn't mention anything about it. [And the link back to the Darcs 
wiki is 404 by the way. "darcs.net" rather than "wiki.darcs.net". Nice 
touch...] Presumably this change is new in Darcs 2. I don't recall 
seeing anything about it when I read the announcement, and I'm now 
searching the wiki and I still don't see anything about it.

Presumably I just need to discover a Windows binary for wget and put it 
in my search path somewhere? Would be nice if this were documented... 
Darcs used to just work by itself without any additional tools.
