Indeed, darcs is a very nice piece of work.  There is a straigtforward
workaround for the convergence problem Martin described (push and pull
in dry-run mode).  Unfortunately, the merge algorithm has some
complexity issues, which means that a merge can take eons (literally).

But its support for cherrypicking is awesome.  It's user interface is
nice and comes with useful and up-to-date documentation.
