There's a bit of confusion here. Alfredo was referring to git
repositories in general, not Haskell repositories. You're assuming
everyone who uses darcs are using it for Haskell. If I understand
correctly, darcs is a general purpose VCS written in Haskell and
thereby popular in the Haskell community.

In any case, I see no reason to dig into an obviously used for illustration.

Also, I don't care about the VCS.
