I'm kinda flip-floppy on this. I really really like having darcs repair
work on case-insensitive file systems.
I did an informal test, and found that it took over 12 hours to darcs
repair the GHC (hashed) repo on a machine with 1 GiB of RAM, and over
2 hours on a machine with 2 GiB. The time was much more reasonable
the old way. But then again, this was just my one test. Maybe I did
[and darcs repair on the darcs repo is just fine]
Thanks for the protest :-) I could still go either way.
