No, unfortunately, it's not a small fraction. I've hit this problem
on several projects, and because I'm honest about my past experiences
I've been pretty much unable to convince any project I work on to use
Perhaps what you mean is that a small fraction of darcs operations
trigger this behavior. That may be true, but most users will
encounter the behavior at least once, which is too often.
