Do you know why?

I don't think it makes sense to have this in the repository at
http://darcs.net.  What about putting it into a different repository?  Maybe
the wiki would be appropriate?  The problem is that, as I recall, we're
removing everything from the darcs repo that we can.  The goal is to boil it
down to the core bits that make up darcs.

I'm going to mark this as rejected, but that's really an invitation to send
it again against a different repository.  Perhaps we could get someone to
volunteer to maintain a darcs-contribs repo full of community contributions
like this.

I'm sorry if this message sounds negative.  We're just trying to focus the
darcs.net repository.

Thank you,
