Yes, something like this would be nice to have.  I'm not sure where to put
it... probably somewhere in an overview or introduction section.  Perhaps
even at the beginning of the commands reference chapter.

Patches to add such a table to the documentation would be welcome.
Otherwise, I'll get around to adding it myself eventually...

All correct except for the "[0] unless".  --no-resolve-conflicts causes
darcs to not try to resolve any conflicts in the working directory, but the
working directory is still modified.  Fortunately, this actually simplifies
the table.

Also, may want to add in

record	yes		no
push[1]	yes		yes
send[2]	no		no

[1] affects the remote repository
[2] unless apply is automatically called by receiver of the patch, in which
    case see apply
