Erik, Darcs is so slow, buggy and broken by design (I speak for direct
experience) that even the GHC team decided to switch to GIT or
Mercurial, see [1] and [2].

Consider this: three years ago I decided to study a functional
language and I had to decide between OCaml and Haskell. In that
period, for other reasons, I was searching for a new SCM to replace
CVS and I extensively tested Darcs.

Darcs was so broken that I decided for OCaml when I realized it was
written in Haskell.

So Darcs, IMHO, is definitively not "anything significant".
