As someone who follows along in the development of Slime -- and  
someone who gets regular updates via CVS -- I can say that I wouldn't  
be very enthusiastic about switching to darcs.  I spend a lot of time  
in Slime on a Macbook Pro and neither Fink nor MacPorts (formerly  
DarwinPorts) supports an installation of the Haskell compiler on the  
Intel architecture yet.

If I had to I would go and build the Haskell compiler myself, but  
this is not a course of action I would see as favourable.  It most  
certainly would not be favourable to other people I work with who  
don't spend as much time using Lisp who needed help setting up Slime  
in the first place.
