I know that Schwern and maybe some others would prefer .darcs... I just
can't get why.

I as darcs doens't use one external collection of the repos rather does
everything in place, the only indicator of the presence of darcs control
are the metadata files/dirs. If you make them hidden, you hide a
precious information. It seems to me that .darcs would just obfuscate
things.

Thats just my $0.02, of course.
