Will this improve the time for a "./darcs-all pull" for the GHC repository, 
too? With extra-libraries it takes over 20 minutes for me, even though only 
3-4 small patches have actually been pulled and my 2Mbit DSL line sits 
basically idle during the whole time. This is fairly disappointing... :-(
