I think that darcs allowing you to specify a dependency would be a very 
cool feature.

You might be able to make this behavior yourself.  Add a text file 
called ".manualdarcsdependencies.txt", and in the patch "add 
feature_x_support", add a line to that file like this: 
"feature_x_support".  And in the patch "implement feature Y", change 
that line in the file to "feature_x_support: Y".

Darcs would then pull feature_x_support anytime you pulled feature Y,
