[darcs-users] what about removing the unrevert command?

Thank you guys for the various inputs on your git workflows. Also, the
"Understanding Darcs" page made me realize I already considered revert
as an undo command, hence why I never looked for unrevert.

In a conversation I (gh_) had with Petr (mornfall) today on IRC, it
became clear that implementing "darcs stash" should not be tried
before we have a real in-repo branching ( see
http://irclog.perlgeek.de/darcs/2011-04-04#i_3453527 for details,
until 12:30).

Especially (mornfall's words):
> Stash *is* multi-head repo.
> It is just an UI optimized for very short branches.
> Nothing much else.

So the short-term options are being narrowed down to:
- keep unrevert as it is now and improve documentation
- only remove warning message, and update unrevert documentation to
say unpull and amend will "erase" the unrevert patch
- remove unrevert (leaving door open to revert -O to enable cheap and
fallible stash-like workflow)

Enough talking from me on the topic, you know where I stand. I'll be
happy to improve the documentation in any case.
