Testing out Swords & Wizardry the other night suggests that darts are quite possibly the greatest investment for a magic-user: d3 damage isn't much, but the rate of fire (3/round!) meant for some amazing rolls.The magic-user basically gets more attacks, for a time, than the fighting man does. Weird, but awesome.
It gets even worse if you allow the Strength bonus on damage from thrown weapons. You'll see all your fighters turning in their longswords for bandoleers of darty death. ;)
