I assume that means the normal darcs repo, but I can't get the thing to
build with that.  After pulling from darcs.net, getting the right
fastconvert patches, and then cabal installing with darcs and
fastconvert I get

  Building darcs-fastconvert-0.1...

Does going from 216M of CVS to 1.7G of darcs (via tailor, after darcs
optimize) count, or is that expected?
