Well, i would like to highlight that something darcs has over all the
other systems is David Roundy : - ). Other than that, its
cherrypicking abilities and determinism are unmatched and i believe
that so is user comfort in most situations. Also, it is mostly
forgiving about mistakes, as long as you do not push to a public
repository. At that point, things are more complicated.

Yours, Peter.
