	My guess is that this is due to the difference between wildcard 
handling between UNIX and Windows.  In UNIX, applications do not handle 
wildcards.  i.e. ``darcs add -r *.htm'' would not make sense to me (a 
UNIX user) unless you had a bunch of directories named something.htm

	I personally think it's a little silly to put the burden of wildcard 
expansion on the application, but I guess it's not quite as easy to 
``find . -name \*.htm | xargs darcs add'' in Windows.

	One thing you might consider, though, is that it's probably not that 
good of an idea to have a directory that's only partially revision
