I've often wanted to do the same myself, but I suspect that this sort
of feature is pushing the bounds of what can comfortably be done with
a text interface.

Darcs seems to be seeing a fairly healthy uptake these days, so I'm
sure it won't be too long before someone starts work on a GUI, where
this stuff might feel more at home. Likewise the ability to break
hunks apart and record the pieces to different patches.
