Interesting. I haven't looked at annotate yet.

... and it would need to be done in Emacs Lisp (a slow bytecode
implementation) while ``darcs diff | patch -R'' is done in Haskell and
C. Obviously, ``darcs cat'' would make the process slightly faster.
I'm happy with vc-darcs as it stands now, although it's a little bit
hackish at points as darcs obviously wasn't designed to be scriptable.
(Just to make things clear: I am not the original author of vc-darcs,
I just hacked it into a shape that suits me.)
