If --hashed is still meaningful for you, consider converting your
project to the "darcs-2" format, which should be better than the iterim
"hashed" format.

Try "darcs changes --xml".  There are probably other ways to extract the
hash of a patch; I haven't looked.

PS: a hash is inherently NOT unique, because it mapping a transfinite
set (all possible patches) to a finite set (fixed-length hashes).
