The problem is that the publishing repository would contain many
overlapping patches or even record/unrecord pairs which corresponds to
tiny changes. The patches often have short temporary names without long
comments in most cases. I would prefer to build one single patch from
that with better comments and proper name and publish only that. AFAICS
it is not possible in darcs.
