Thank you.

I also run 'darcs check' from the script, but probably suitably creative
people could run any darcs command in a script. CVS has the concept of
"global options" which are used like this: cvs <global options> <command>
<options for comand> , and the quiet options ('-q' (somewhat quiet) and '-Q'
(very quiet)) are global (not sure why CVS needs two degrees of quietness -
maybe because it does not have a verbose option).

Thanks for the explanation. I will apply your latter suggestion. I should
have reported a bug instead of recording that second patch.

Thanks for the great user-support!
