Note that if we carry on (middle-term) with the proposed idea of having
libdarcs + a small UI layer around it called darcs, most of the module
won't have anything to do with the user manual.

Modules within libdarcs will go from literate haskell to heavilly
haddocked code, and ui modules (should|will) get thinner. So the
question of having them be literate haskell is less important than to
have a ui-guru that cares also about the manual.
