I almost do, on the grounds that the most likely implementation forces
the user to terminate darcs to continue in an appropriate fashion,
after deciding they want to set ~/.darcs/author. In principle, though,
I don't object.

In practice, I'd say darcs should offer a way to re-check without
having to ctrl+c or otherwise terminate it. Also, if the prompt were
to give an acccurate file-path for Windows, that'll be helpful for all
of 'my' users (who currently end up recording as each other when they
copy repos around, even though they each have a consistent user
