One question: how is one supposed to install cgi script i.e. enable public to 
browse the directory in a web-hosted environment or this is not the intention
or we are going in the repository-browser direction?

Maybe it's not the case, but I assume that it's not true that everybody can run
his/her own server and thereby provide darcs repository for the public, but
since darcs is distributed rcs, it would be nice to have such 'feature'.
