Well, I do pull and push it, but that's not really my problem.

Mainly, I'm finding that I have include all kinds of context
information in every patch name manually, and then try to
remember what I wrote whenever doing any kind of search.

I could use that 'touch' thing, or other match tools. But it's
just not the right way to work. These have really become
separate projects now, they need to be separate repos.

I think this is a natural kind of evolution that often happens,
so it's worthwhile thinking through the right way to do this
in darcs.
