Hello, why doesn't the darcs plugin simply use "darcs annotate
--patch=$PATCH $PATH" so that darcs provides a complete, consistent
output of the metadata (and data) of that path from that point in
history? Then the darcs plugin can use Alberto Bertogli's ann2ascii
code  to parse the XML output from darcs.
I may be misunderstanding something, but it appears to me that this
would avoid a complicated problem of the plugin attempting to
reconstruct this historical metadata by instead having darcs provide it.
^-- it's a shame that these tools are not hosted at darcs.net, but
hopefully the people who could use them will discover them anyway
