Thanks for bringing that to the forefront.  I'm sure there is discussion
on this buried in our mail archives somewhere.

Also, I had a chance to speak with David a few weeks ago, and he
sketched out an idea for darcs annotate (sadly, I haven't had time to
transcribe my hand-written notes yet).

As I understand it, the solution consists in building up some sort of
cache that associates filenames to the patches that modify them.  Could
you confirm this, David?
