That's an interesting proposal, Zooko, but tricky to implement
(especially with darcs being distributed and all), more so right
up to the point of a release.

The best we can offer is to make the string specific enough for anybody
who puts it in their log to deserve what they get.  Alternatively, as
Jason suggests, we could try to put this in the patch format itself, but
the same trickiness in rolling out this change now applies.
