Yes, it turns out that's the case.

Yeah, tailor is nice. And thanks for the
sample config.

Actually, my first thought was indeed to do this
by hacking at the repo with some kind of
scripting. With Darcs 1, I probably would
have done that, but with Darcs 2 I feel
a little out of my depth.

Is there any way to dump *all* of the information
in a Darcs 2 repo into some scriptable format -
xml, or whatever - and then recreate the
repo after modification?

So this won't work yet for Darcs 2?
