I've been using ganache a lot to fill my cakes and I'd like to use it to crumbcoat as it is so easy to make. However I'm concerned about the dark color of chocolate showing through the white fondant. I don't want to use white chocolate because it's difficult to handle and also too sweet. Has anybody done it?

Pretty much all of my cakes have dark chocolate ganache under them. . I have never had a problem with it showing.

Yep, it's just fine.

OP, the only time I've had a problem with ganache showing through is when I rolled my fondant really too thin in places, and it showed there. If you roll your fondant a uniform thickness, you won't notice. Most of my cakes have ganache underneath as well.
