Another data point: I'm tracking a subversion repository in darcs. The
subversion URL and revision number of each change go in the long
comment. It would be nice to be able to find back such changes directly
in the darcs history, without grepping in either the subversion or
darcs history.

Ciao.                                                          Vincent.
