I've pushed my minor fixes to the code of language-c to 
http://hub.darcs.net/imz/language-c_fixes and 
http://hub.darcs.net/imz/language-c_cleanup (which is a superset of the 
former). And will push more if I have more minor fixes.

So, if someone is interested, please pull them.

As for the problems with the conversion from darcs-1 to darcs-2, they were 
overcome with the help of darcs maintainers in the darcs-users mailing 
list, and now I do the changes in the darcs-1 clone of the repo pointed at 
by Hackage, covert to darcs-2 then, and push to hub.darcs.net. 
(http://hub.darcs.net/imz/language-c_hackage holds the result of the 
conversion of the upstream darcs-1 repo. visq's darcs-2 repo is 2 patches
