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
SPY My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
