There is not much to summarize. I told Jason that I was not sure about
my patch's correctness until I figured out the checkpoints. After I
understood the role of checkpoints I realized my original patch was
incomplete and have send and amendment to the list (with two
additional patches changing tests). I must have done something wrong
with --in-reply-to flag, because the email with amendment created a
new thread titled "darcs patch: test that tentative leftover is
cleared (and 2 more)".

Consider this second thread as a continuation of this one. The test
patches have been reviewed by Trent. The main patch is pending review.
