For me having something like darcs pull --complete would be enough :) The two situations I 
found a need for it, was when I checked out a repo (one is darcs itself) over a slow 
connection just to test it, and then kept pulling updates. Later being interested in the 
sources not just in testing I thought it would be nice to be able to upgrade the same 
repo. Again for fast connections this is not much of an issue.
