There is inconsistent advice regarding Setup.hs/Setup.lhs.
(#! in .hs files seems to be a feature of GHC Haskell.)
For releases, another possibility is Cabal's sdist feature. This will
do a bit more checking, and ensure that the tarball has the structure
expected by HackageDB. In the example project, you'd want to add
to make this work.
Regarding hosting, I don't think that darcs.haskell.org is the preferred
solution (unfortunately nor is anything else).
Regarding publicity, another possibility is HackageDB, even if it's not
fully working yet (http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage).
