That's probably more pain than it's worth.  I've been following this
bug for quite a while, and basically they just don't want to do things
in a way that works for Darcs.  I don't know why; nobody has said
"Port X requires the versions we have" or anything like that, just
that this is the way they're doing things.  Presumably it has
something to do with keeping in tune with Haskell Platform, but I
dunno about that....
