Could someone please summarize what code is currently bundled with darcs
that isn't darcs?  I had the impression that most of it was "in house"
code that had/has not been formalized into a separate libraries yet
(e.g. an FFI for zlib, byte strings before they were librarified).

To me, that's different from a bundled (convenience) copy, which is
where you basically download libfoo's tarball, unpack it in your source
tree, and then do "darcs rec -lam 'Install copy of libfoo 5.1'".
