It would be nice to have the equivalent of mercurial's "hg serve"
command for darcs.

"hg serve" launches a web page that represents the current repository
(by defaukt on port 8000). It enable people do make HTTP get and pull.
This enable easy collaboration during local events. But it is also a
friendly, GUI-ish way to look at one's repository history. This would be
one way to compensate the current lack of GUI of darcs.

See
http://hgbook.red-bean.com/read/collaborating-with-other-people.html#sec:collab:serve

A first step for a prototype would be to take the code of darcsden and
remove all unnecessary features for this purpose.  Unfortunately
darcsden still has some dependencies that do not compile with GHC 7.4.
