[darcs-users] why does darcs convert merge patches?

The darcs convert command uses "tentativelyMergePatches" to add patches to 
the fresh repo, passing an empty list for the local patches to merge with.

This seems odd - why not just go directly through the call to add the 
patches at the end of the repo? Changing it to do this makes a massive 
difference to the speed.

If anyone has any idea why it is the way it is, please let me know! As 
far as I can tell it's been that way since the beginning.
