It appears to read the remote _darcs/prefs/post file, which I understand
to be related to the darcs send over HTTP feature.  I think it searches
for email entries within that file, (those starting with mailto:).

Ah! Perhaps the reason it is HAVE_HTTP only is that darcs send over HTTP
only works with the HTTP library.  It'll be worth seeing what darcs send
does when its input is 'Post' (notice that readPost returns either a
Sendmail or a Post).

If this doesn't make any sense, I'll just push the FIXME comment
