Thanks, if I add --verbose I indeed get a list of patches that are
"missing" from the remote repository.

I'm curious, tho: isn't there some other way?
E.g. using CVS, Arch, and Bzr, I very often
do "<vcstool> diff -r <branch> <somefile>" to see the actual diff for
a particular (set of) file(s).  So I'd expect darcs to provide something
for that as well.
