I love Darcs, unfortunately had no chance to test it in a larger developer 
environment yet.

But in any case: darcs was designed *exactly* for developer communities and 
workflows like Drupal has. Not like svn that noly fixes the mayor annoyences 
of an ancient RCS. Darcs has no frontends, but who cares :) zwe dont even 
ship with an install frontend, so should we care about developer frontends?

Thank you, Gordon for getting this going!
