Works now. V-e-r-y slowly. (Takes ages 'reading pristine'.)

One could just install the script on PATH, and either set
DARCSPACKAGEDIR in the environment or by modifying the script,
not putting darcsdir-cygwin on PATH.

In 1995, Linux was almost a bicycle; an alternative way of live to the
Windows petrol beasts that had to be taken to the dealer for service.
By 2008, Linux has bloated into a gas-guzzler, and local vendors and
artisans have had to yield to "all under one roof" big box hypermarkets.
