As an alternative (since I can think of lots of  situations where the
exec bit is unrelated to the file name) check out my idea for file
metadata.  I posted it on the wishlist:

Actually, you'd need to do this during 'apply', which will be run by
any push commands into this repo.  And, the push command will use 'darcs'
instead of the name of your script, so it mmight be advisable to name
your script 'darcs' and have it call 'darcs-bin', or something.

Things will become more pleasant once we get scripting hooks in place.

Also, we need to decide when and why the hooks should be called...
