You may be also interested in the context file mechanism, if you're
not already familiar with it.

You can send against a context file, which stands in as a substitute
for another repository.

(darcs changes --context is what you're looking for)

Incidentally, the .dpatch files that darcs send generates also double as
context files, so if somebody sends me a patch against (say)
http://darcs.net and I want to see exactly what the patch looks like
from their point of view, I can do something like

  darcs get http://darcs.net --context foo.dpatch
  cd darcs.net
  darcs apply -i foo.dpatch
  darcs diff --last=4
