If it's not willing to be an SMTP client, it should simply prepare an
attachment bundle and be done with it.

When feeling motivated, I could write an ELisp function to drive Gnus
to set up a message and attach whatever file darcs prepares.

I run an MTA (exim) on my system, and all of my mail preferred clients
are configured to talk directly to it. None of these mail clients are
MAPI-aware.¹ Clearly I can take of my e-mail needs, but darcs acts
like it knows better than I do how to do so.
