Well I at least was going to, but after seeing so many people requesting that 
--summary be the default I gave up hope. As long as there is a flag to 
request the old behaviour, I can live with this change. But I'm becoming 
increasingly worried by the endless stream of wishes to make darcs more 
cvs-like, sometimes with 'cvs behaves that way' being the only real 
supporting argument.

Guys, cvs is _crap_. It's the DOS of version control systems. Its interface 
stinks. I have to put up with it every day, I don't want to use anything like 
it for my personal projects.

But I just don't have the time to 'speak up' against all this and, in any 
case, it seems like a big waste of time. It's not as if David doesn't have 
enough stuff to deal with without having to argue on 'add vs whatever'.
