	I really have to wonder how much of your time you spend worrying about 
whether the directory you're in is under darcs control.  I mean, why 
not just assume that if it was when you did an init, it still is, and 
let the record tell you that it wasn't?

	And would you just panic if you had a project with a subdirectory?
