Ack .... but on the other hand if the repository is public *and*
people do organize their checkins in a sorted manner, than using a SCM
can be fine too.

Anyway, as a side note on this thread: *darcs is just far toooo
slow* for decent maintenance of large pieces of software. I tried once
to create a mozilla repository, do some work with it and it was completely
unusable. I am not talking about minutes, but almost hours to finish
tasks that should take seconds.
