I believe there is a recipe in the manual for doing something like this
from Mutt. 

This is complicated by people using many different mail clients. And
there's people like me, whose MUA and repos are on different machines,  
meaning I would need to use something like shared SSH keys, and having
an interactive interface to darcs remotely would be hard.
