One minor bit of good news is that HEAD and consequently the next major
release of darcs *will* have this ability.  It's probably not reasonable
to include it in the darcs-2.4.x line as it requires Cabal 1.8, and it
doesn't change the fact that fixing dependencies will make life a good
deal more predictable for us (at least until things are more stable as
Ganesh says).
