If I understand correctly, this patch copies the chosen darcs into a 
temp directory before testing against it. What difference does that 
make? I thought you could already run against an arbitrary darcs, but 
I'm quite likely missing something!

I think it will also go a bit wrong on windows because it doesn't use 
the .exe suffix.

patch508 might provide more context.  The example use case here is for the 
hypothetical darcs issue manager who has a "darcs-2.5" and a "darcs-2.7.2" 
executable on her machine, ie. not actually called "darcs"

Well, if we *had* an issue manager anyway...

Do I understand correctly that…

- we might want something like this patch so that people can test against 
darcs executables that aren't named darcs (eg. darcs-2.5)
- it should be updated to `<.> "exe"` on Windows

Probably too old to be useful for anything.
