I think the traditional solution is:
1. whatsnew would default to --summary (for speed)
3. The boring pref would exclude almost all the files you don't want, 
such as .o files
2. non-boring files that are not in the repo would be listed as ? so you 
could decide whether or not to add them

I would definitely appreciate if darcs had this feature set.
