[darcs-users] Naming consistency between darcs and other DVCSs

Hi all

I just re-stumbled across the darcs Rosetta Stone[1].  What I hadn't  
noticed before was the section "Recommendations for unification":

	• rename get to clone
	• rename changes to log
	• rename record to commit (DVCS are popular enough now)
	• rename rollback to new "repeal"

These changes sound sensible to me.  (Plus `darcs uncommit`?)  Is  
there an active effort to make darcs more consistent with other  
DVCSes?  Regardless of which came first, git terminology is becoming  
ubiquitous.  After showing an existing git user darcs, and noticing  
his surprise at `darcs annotate -p`, I think there may be a strong  
case for a language reform.
