I'm not sure if "involved" is the right term: I started proving Ian's theory in
coq, but i'm nowhere near expert enough in coq. At some point, Ian's
formalisation may be realized in coq, but proving darcs3/camp's code in coq is
way out of our reach for the moment. Still, if you are interested in this
effort, the coq code lives in the same repo as the camp paper,
http://code.haskell.org/camp/devel/paper. I'd be very glad to have someone else
who knows coq and darcs look at it.
