That would probably work, though the "unrevert" state may be fragile so
there's a risk of losing it.

To be safe I'd suggest recording, "darcs obliterate -O" to save the
patch to disk, unsuspend, then "darcs apply" to reapply it. At this
point you may have some conflicts to resolve if it conflicted with the
previously suspended patches.

If you're sure it won't conflict, then you can skip the
"obliterate"/"apply" steps, and in fact "revert"/"unrevert" will
probably work out too.

This should be improved in darcs, of course. I'll get to it sometime..
