A related question - why is this tagging needed? It is the unique
bkrev id. Well, maybe it is needed, in case somebody wants to retrieve
a patch using it but I don't thinks so.

The time shown doesn't seem to be the GMT one:

Mon Nov  8 08:45:33 GMT 2004  blaisorblade_spam
  tagged 418eebddFHdKiyNuIIU3RVlzi94H7A

but it is 03:45:33 +0000 in BKCVS.

Another thing, "darcs changes" shows the above tag without any patch
following it but BKCVS has the following log corresponding to it (cvs
log ChangeSet):

revision 1.23918
date: 2004-11-08 03:45:33 +0000;  author: blaisorblade_spam;  state: Exp;  lines: +0 -0
[PATCH] uml: fix symbol conflict in linking

Do you use the ChangeSet file logs or you do a global log and match
the logical revisions?
