I am strongly in favour of *not* hiding them using the 'n' by default
tactic. Also, I'd love to see a help text improvement on HEAD. We have
collected a lot of text, it should only be matter of distilling it into
the online help text.

Btw., I dislike the 'filler' terminology as well. I don't see what these
patches are "filling". In normal usage, they are the "second half" of
the split. I don't find it surprising to see the second half (it would
probably be more surprising to not see it). And I also agree with the
revert argument (I.e. anything I say 'n' to in record should be later
available to darcs revert, and nothing else, unless dependencies caused
a skipped question -- but these are announced as well.)
