It works fine, but for large repos will be very memory-intensive.  You're
better off if you can run a darcs get on the server.  If that's not
possible (e.g. you aren't running an ssh server at home or are behind a
firewall), you could just scp a repository to the server.  It's less
bandwidth-efficient than the push method, but far more memory-efficient.
