It seems there is indeed a reordering, now is this wanted or is this a bug ? 

Here is what I get from 'darcs annotate -p 'patchname' ' :

hunk ./META 1
-description = "Tools for Ocsigen"
-version = "0.3.x"
-requires = "netstring"
-archive(byte) = "ocsimore.cma"
rmfile ./META
addfile ./META1
move ./META1 ./META.in
addfile ./META2
move ./META2 ./META2.in

Now with 'darcs annotate --summary -p 'patchname' ':

./META1 -> ./META.in
./META2 -> ./META2.in
M ./META.in +4
R ./META2.in

Well, I am working on a forge project, and I would like to do something like what Trac offers for repository browsing.
The key part is that the repository browsing must work for any patch, not only the latest one. 
So I must be able to get the same kind of information that 'darcs show files' provides but for any patch (with some other infos like file author, last patch in which it was modified etc..), but sadly there is no --match or patch for this command.
