[darcs-users] more hunk editing feedback

I haven't really been following this discussion, but I tried out the 
hunk editing in 2.4 beta 3 and it seems kind of plausible.

However, I probably won't use it.  I do most of my recording and 
reverting using the darcsum emacs mode.  In that mode you interactively 
select hunks and then hit 'c' to record, or 'U' to revert.  There's an 
equivalent mode for git, called gitsum, and the gitsum mode supports 
hunk splitting.  You just position your cursor on the line you want to 
split, and hit a key (I forget which), and then you have two hunks that 
can be individually selected/reverted.

This is the UI I want for darcs, but it seems unlikely that the new 
hunk-editing support will help - darcsum probably wants an interactive 
way to split a hunk.  Just thought I'd mention this...
