I expect something as large as the kernel tree would cause problems in this

couldn't. The GHC needs the GHC + some GHC addons in order to compile

True, though as you say, not a show-stopper.

From a functionality standpoint, darcs seem very similar to monotone, with a
couple minor trade-offs in either direction.

I wonder if Linus would mind publishing his feature requests to the monotone
developers, so that other projects, like darcs, would know what needs working
