My real hope was to show people that this sort of thing is relatively
painless to do so that more people could take on benchmarking of Darcs.

    darcs get --lazy http://darcs.net --tag 2.3.1 darcs-2.3.1
    cd darcs-2.3.1
    cabal install -fdeps-only
    cabal build
    cp dist/build/darcs/darcs ~/.cabal/bin/darcs-2.3.1
