Dear darcs users,

What would be the best setup for a single developer working on a
project, on multiple workstations? I'm right now working on a personal
project, primaraly developed on my home machine. Now and then,
however, I find myself with lots of free time on my daily job, and it
would be nice if I could work on my personal project on this time.

The problem here is keeping both workstations sync'ed. At home, I'm
free to connect to any host, and I'm not behind a firewall. I have
access to a FTP site which can later be accessed as HTTP. At work, I'm
behind draconian firewalls which won't let me connect to anything else
but HTTP, and even then, only through a complicated chain of
authenticated proxies. Browsers usually deal OK with these proxies,
but everything else usually has trouble with them.

Would darcs help me to work on this setup? If yes, how would be the
best way to handle to keep the two workstations synchronized?
