That sounds right, but then how are you handling the issue1176 case,
where I supply --remote-repo and no explicit arguments?

That does not sound like the whole picture.  So right now, the problem
is that the defaultrepo is in the sources, but the remote repo is not.
How should we deal with that?

:-)  I should have mentioned it

Not sure I understand.  It wasn't just a means to avoid firewalls for
what it's worth. It's also about not having to type in your password (or
maybe use a slower ssh connection) when all you want to do is darcs



PS. In plain-text mode in mutt, your quoting structure seems a little
    weird, because the first line of what you're quoting is not quoted
    (which makes your messages slightly harder to read).

    I suspect it's something related to the gmail web interface, but I'm
    not sure :-/
