Hello Leslie,

I'm not sure if darcs is the best choice here. I like it very much but
one serious problem of it's the lack of permission storage. Every
script will need to be tagged as executable when building the tarball.

That's really a _need_ thing. Also because is difficult to be sure if
one change didn't break something else and parted is a core software.

Debian Installer does it. We have a parted_server that has every
command queued there and then when the user ask it, it saves
everything together. Might help here.
