If this is acceptable to you folks: let's see how this hashed-storage
stuff goes.  My hope is that we can make hashed repositories acceptable
for use by the GHC team and the rest of the darcs user community.  If
so, the GHC buildbot could just use --lazy instead of downloading
checkpoint patches.

Would this be OK for the GHC team?
