That sounds very nice indeed.  If that pans out, and you also fix the UI
issues (by which I mean I have to type approximately three times as many
characters to accomplish the same thing that I do in darcs), that would
be very nice.  It would be helpful to everyone to have two VCs that are
as easily, and fully, distributed as darcs.

Would you also preserve the content of each patch in its entirety, like
darcs does, or would you only preserve the log in its entirety and have
an aggregate patch only (like tla does)?

bzr == bazaar-ng?
