I think it's important to make it optional, and I'd argue, not the default 

Centralised storage is certainly useful for people with many copies of large 
trees (like kernel hackers), but for most users I don't think it's that 

One of the things that makes darcs and rcs so easy to use is that you don't 
have to setup a repo and get the perms right and so on.
