So if I'm pulling from/pushing to a darcs-2-format repo, my local repo
must be darcs-2 as well?

To make this perfectly clear: this is the *conversion process* only,
you can still have multiple branches *after* all repos have been
synced to a single conversion. Right?)
Should something like this work?
darcs convert main main-2
mv _darcs old_darcs
cp -a ../main-2/_darcs .
darcs rec -am "amalgam of changes in 'branch'"
(But you'd lose your recorded history specific to the branch.)
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
