Version control system

'darcs' is an advanced revision control system along the lines of CVS or arch. It has two particularly distinctive features which differ from other revision control systems: each copy of the source is a fully functional branch, and underlying it is a consistent and powerful theory of patches (the latter being darcs' most important feature).
