[darcs-users] darcs interactive use from non-terminals

One thing which I find somewhat of an annoyance is that I've
discovered no way to use darcs in interactive mode from within
something which isn't a real (pseudo)terminal (eg from within M-x
shell / M-x eshell etc in emacs).
I think the problem boils down to the fact that the darcs code (which
I haven't yet examined properly) is expecting to be able to detect
single keypresses (ie raw terminal input) rather than line-based input.
I mentioned to Eric that I might take a look at this, and he thought
it'd be best to check whether other people have any opinions about
this. (I hadn't really come up with any concrete plans, but was maybe
thinking about a standard darcs option which would allow darcs to
accept responses as individual lines of input ... actually some kind
of auto-detection based on terminal capabilities might be preferable -
but might be more fragile...).
P.S. darcsum.el is great - but is only a partial solution...
