And in fact, I could even grant my repo-within-a-repo wish (where pulling a
repo with a stub for a sub-repo allows me to CD to that directory and 'darcs
pull' from the default location):

  if [ -n "$is_subrepo" ]; then
    cd $CURRENT_FILE && darcs init && cat "$default_repo_url" >

(CURRENT_FILE in this case would actually be a directory)
(in case I hadn't mentioned it earlier, I would also like to have metadata
on directories, which isn't really much extra code)
