just a little (side)note: please don't do the mistake of introducing a
new patch type for something that is adequately served by addfile and
hunk patches. At least unless you want to repeat the setpref
debacle. (It may be that addfile will need substituting, but definitely
be wary of hunks.) Oh, and keep in mind that if we add a new patch type,
we are making an incompatible darcs repository format (akin to the
darcs-2 incompatibility, although arguably less severe).
