I like the symmetry of pull/unpull (AFAIK they are symmetric). I do not find
it confusing, since I consider its purpose to be the undoing of a pull. Thus
I would not be tempted to use it otherwise, but I suppose it is possible
that I might accidentally unpull a patch that had not been pulled from
another repository, and thereby lose work. Of course, even if darcs knew
which patches had been pulled, it would have no way of knowing whether the
patch still existed in another repository. Perhaps the answer to these
concerns is to make regular backups and replicate repositories.
