Local mini-sprints sound like a great idea.

Darcs-users may not be aware of this, but there's but a recent flurry of clean-up work on the Darcs code: not deep stuff, mind you, just trying to bring it all in line with a single style guide rather than our usual mis-mash (and hopefully along the way bonk the incomprehensible helper function names on the head, wspfr).

Perhaps in Southampton, we could start pushing to deepen this kind of work a bit.
