Would it be a solution to have the local repository remember if it
was get'ted from a two-way channel (i.e. ssh), and try to use the same
method as default when pushing?

So if I 'get' a repository over ssh or from the file system, "darcs
push" would default to "--and-apply" using ssh, but if I 'get' it over
http (or if I don't have write access over ssh, perhaps), it would
still default to sending the patch by email.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
