not in my workflow!  Usually I want the changes that aren't included in 
this record-session to be recorded in a later named-patch, rather than 
deleted. (Although the latter would be convenient in the case of typos, 
if darcs could read my mind... and if it could coordinate 
editing-the-file with vim [my editor], which seems a bit unlikely)

(I haven't gotten around to trying eric's revised version -- i've 
wondered whether I would be sad, after editing the lines in the buffer 
that it tells me to edit, to not be able to visually refer to the final 
state a.k.a. what is in the physical file)
