+1 for using roundup, in case any stakeholders didn't already know :-)

For me, the UI agnosticism that roundup's mail gateway (coupled with my
CLI wrapper) provides is a killer feature.  To use a js-heavy web UI
like review-board would require drastic changes to my working
environment -- change I am not willing to undergo for Darcs.

I have not looked at darcswatch yet (I think this thread is the first
I've heard of it).
