Thanks, Ganesh!

So Petr, I'm just trying to help nudge this closer to completion by
talking at it some more :-).  This prototype by Ganesh seems to show how
hashed-storage could still be usefully tested without
Storage.Hashed.Darcs being baked in.  If this was fleshed out properly,
would you agree that this is an adequate solution to the test suite

This is just a more concrete version of my question from earlier in the
thread: could you live with the compromise solution
[Storage.Hashed.Darcs being part of the darcs project, but as a
standalone library] if the test suite problem were resolved?
