Sorry Zooko, I realise now that I have completely misunderstood your
proposal.  My new understanding is that you want to hard-code the number
of entries darcs knows about so that we always ignore the first N lines
with an Ignore-this-type line in them.  That sounds quite doable indeed
(although maybe the upcoming release is a bit tight for that).
