Not yet, but it's easy to add (stripping "debian/" when retrieving
files should be enough).

That shouldn't be a problem, I will just get the list of tags in the
commit hook as I do for Git.
Is there some way to see that the current head changed? With Git I can
use the commit hash for this, is there something comparable for darcs?
Can tags change?
Does darcs support branches? Or is there a repository naming scheme for
"branches" (in case "branch" means using another repository)?
Is it possible to retrieve file contents for a specific tag remotely?
Maybe by (ab)using darcsweb? Or do I need a local clone and use darcs
show contents with it?
