I was focus in web UI because it's for *everyone*. GUI is always rectricted to a environment: you have to install GTK libs, or QT libs, or .... with web, you just have to got simple browser.... But I will be very glad with your application.

I think that the graphical (web or GUI) is a critical point for darcs adoption. It could be best versioning system in the world theorically but if you don't bring a graphical interface (all cli), then you have a minority of users.... this is my point of view. I'm just an sporadical user.
