PS: I hate it if people add features in this half-assed way. I mean, it
took me a few grep -r to see that DefaultRemoteDarcs is used in a number
of places, so it became obvious that the option isn't honored
consistently. Whoever added --remote-darcs must have been aware of this.
Very well, if it turns out to be too inconvenient to thread the
parameter through to the end, then please either abandon the effort
(it's not that the feature is essential), or else find a proper solution
(a global mutable variable might be justified here). But don't leave us
with half-working "features" that cannot be relied on to actually work
the way one expects.
Ok, I feel better now. Sorry for the rant. I guess the responsible party
has disappered long ago...
