There seems to be a consensus that darcs-fastconvert should at least
officially be a darcs product: it's what Ganesh suggested when Petr
first wrote it as a darcs patch, and what I heartily +1ed.  We may have
failed to actually act on this intention (it happens), but I think it
was always there.

Florian and Alexey, is this something you'd would be able to massage

I could go either way myself, but as a matter of principle, if in doubt,
we should err on the side of grumpiness.  The problem with feature creep
is that all of the features that creep in do so because they are good
