Well, I really dislike git's interface, but darcs appears to be
completely counter-intuitive to me. Possibly, I have used it too
little, or I'm used to Mercurial too much, don't know.

qrecord` works. If darcs provides anything better --- well, good for
it, possibly, it needs to be ported to other version control systems,
too :)
