Ah yes, I think I remember that one issue is that computing the minimal context is actually expensive.
I wonder what Darcs could compute that would a useful “smaller context”. Maybe since Darcs already bases the bundle off the latest shared tag between sender and trunk (don't quote me on this, just a guess), it could just be minimal-assuming-that-latest-tag?
