Right. There are quite a number of API changes that darcsden needs to be
adapted to. One of those API changes was to getLogInfo and I struggled a
bit when I tried to adapt darcsden to the type changes. But then I
realized that most of the complication of getLogInfo is only there to
support the extended information you get with --xml-output, in
particular, when you ask for changes to specific files, the xml output
tells you which of the selected patches (if any) /created/ that file.
None of that is needed for darcsden, so exporting a simplified version
for darcsden seemed to make the most sense here.
