Your are talking about code browsing the darcs repo, right?  It is known
that darcs has a well thougth-out theoretic foundation, but that its
requirements on CPU power can explode in certain cases.  I'm a mercurial
man, but I've always found darcs to be very user friendly.

Git is a beast in the number of commands needed to operate a repo,
I sure hope I'll manage.  Then again, with the huge count of git repos
out there, git knowledge is a must.
