Hmm, no.  Patches in a repo are kept in the order they are
added (pulled/recorded) to the repo.  Only if a patch is
removed all the succeeding patches will have their place
(and number) decreased.  And darcs changes shows the patches
in this (but reversed) order.

But numbers will be different in different branches, and
some day darcs will stop to preserve the order, although
it will probably not reorder patches often since it is just
unnecessary work.
