As config.py must know the URL to the repository, I used
/project/*/public_html/darcs as base for the search. The script is
attached and seems to produce a useful config.py that describes 35
repositories. The repodesc is lost, though, because there is no
automatic way to retrieve it, or is there?

I have no darcsweb to test it and my sh-magic is limited, so be
careful. :)
