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.
