I'm wondering if we would be better of with a simpler patch that
doesn't include the --store-in-memory option? I don't think darcs dist
is such a performance-critical command that we need to give the user
the option of speeding it up at the cost of some memory use.  Unless
you're thinking that with a more flexible dist, it could be used for
perfomance-critical purposes?
