I would be willing to take a shot at it.  I have never written any 
haskell, but I've written quite a bit of ocaml so I'm not a complete 
stranger to functional programming.  I've got the code for 1.0.8, but I 
can update to the development version if necessary.

I was just about to start talking code, but perhaps we should move this 
to darcs-devel, where it might be more on-topic.

I would definitely be interested in those resources.
