But that's scary! Unix mv overwrites the destination file, and -- on
the surface -- darcs move seems to include such an mv! Also, aren't
there situations that are ambiguous enough that darcs can't choose the
right one of the two semantics to do? I would feel safer if I could at
least choose to provide a flag saying which sort of operation I was
trying to do...
