I wrote a long post where I talked about this sort of thing.  IMO, this 
really is something that doesn't need to be in darcs because it is a 
knowledge problem more than a source control problem.

Basically, there are a number of ways to do this, based on your work 
flow and protocols of choice.  There are a number of tools you could use 
to do this outside of darcs (like the recently mentioned environment 
variables), and if you couldn't find one you liked you could write your own.

Darcs does have two tools you might find useful, though: 1) darcs keeps 
track of the last repo used and will automatically use it if one is not 
specified when using push/pull/send, and 2) darcs keeps a list of all 
the repos pushed, pulled, or sent to.  The storage of the information is 
in _darcs/prefs/.  The second one is used by the shell tab-completion 
scripts you can find for darcs.
