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 [1] 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
