Yeah, after some debugging and learning more how Lunar works I also
noted that Lunar will unpack the source archive from last time and try
to do a pull from that - so of course - it is better to be a proper
darcs repo, so we get the "incrementalness".  :)

Anyway, it works great and hopefully will be integrated soon.
