Before anyone thinks I'm the mastermind of an evil scheme, I should point out
that I am in full agreement with David's rationale.  Complicating the whole
darcs system for this would be a Bad Thing, and I also think the need for this
is mostly "culture-bound" to what people are used to in CVS.  However, a wrapper
script for this purpose wouldn't be that complex on its own.
