I think that darcs allowing you to specify a dependency would be a very
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,
