Would it be reasonable for darcs to have an option to support such "typical"

Yes, quite true. But such cases are far less likely than accidentally
working on the same file.

There is certainly no protection against mental confusion. :-)
But anyhow, working on the *same* file is so exceedingly common that I would
not call it confusion. Just weakness, say, or maybe oversight, or neglect,
or neccessity. Whatever.
Some compatibility option might turn out to be very useful.
Just to enable a more "defensive" style of work.
