This is up for discussion, of course.

I claim that having this sort of functionality in a revision control system
is obsolete. It made sense back when darcs was new, as public repo hosting
services hadn't been invented yet, but nowadays it's just a relict and a web
service can do these things easier and more reliably.

This move gets us rid of a lot of code that is obscure, non-portable, and
hard to maintain.

  * resolve issue2604: remove --reply and related options
  
  The options are: ccApply, reply, happyForwarding and were supported by the
  apply and push commands. This patch removes all conditional compilation from
  Darcs.Util.Compat. It also removes the dependency on the random package when
  building for Windows.
