side note; a workflow problem I have with current darcs-record that 
isn't totally fixed by hunk-splitting existing;

when I have a lot of hunks to record, into a few different patches, I 
wish I could go through them in one darcs-record session and sort them 
into the several different "bins" (patches I want to create).  Instead I 
have to go through them once, to record one of the patches and kinda 
half memorize what I'm going to do with the rest, and then go through 
all the hunks again in a second darcs-record (hit n / y too slowly? get 
bored. Too fast? don't have enough time to see the next hunk coming, and 
sometimes press the wrong answer..), and then a third record session...

hunk splitting does mean that I don't as likely have to repeatedly quit 
mid-record to get any one patch to be what I want it to be, so total 
frustration does decrease :-)
