Yes, there is one hard to see flag in each PatchInfo, which is whether the
patch is inverted or not (inverted patches may be created by darcs
rollback).  Inverted patches have a *- instead of a ** as a separator
between the author and date (yes, that's terribly ugly).  Since this is not
inverted, it needs an 'f' at the end (if inverted, it would need a 't').

$ echo -n "give error message on duplicate entries in defaults.David Roundy <droundy at abridgegame.org>20031111133710f" | sha1sum
