Two things you should know;
patches are not always compressed, they do, however, always have the .gz
do an explicit 'cp -r' of your repository before trying anything on your
_darcs/patches dir since changing a repo that you got by a 'darcs get foo
bar' will alter both repos because darcs uses hardlinks between them.
