http://bugs.darcs.net/issue121 has three separate requests for the
feature starting from 2006. By coincidence someone else asked about this
on #haskell just a few days ago. I personally have felt the lack
repeatedly in the last few months which was why I did it, but since I'll
just run unstable anyway I don't matter here.

So I think it's worth doing, but I don't feel that strongly.
