Say, David -- have you tried running these large patch tests with darcs 
compiled with nhc98?  Is it possible to compile darcs with nhc98?  In my 
experience, nhc98 binaries are about 1/3 the size of ghc binaries, but are 
about 10 times slower.  However, since nhc98 seems to focus on space 
constraints -- rather than speed constraints -- perhaps the heap management 
is better.
