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

I do not remember any use of unrevert, although it could be explained
because I rarely use revert too... Does anyone use revert frequently? I
mean, I *think* it is actually normal to don't use unrevert very often.
However its existence looks natural for me, I think I agree with Eric in
most he have said in his first response.

Well, for those purposes I just use branches

$ cd ..
$ darcs get --lazy --to-patch 'Last patch I want to keep' myrepo/
Unapplying X patches
Finished getting.
$ cd myrepo_something/

Is stash really needed? Am I loosing something?
