This is not a fault of darcs; this is how Debian packages work.  What's
the problem?  apt-get source and cp -r and that's it.

One extra command, and it's less work than learning how to use N
different patch systems.

Because everyone knows how to use cp and diff, and because I get diffs
sent to the BTS all the time.  It works.  And it has nothing to do with
VCS -- it's just Debian packages.
