Comment (by guest):

 Anyway, to move things forward:

 It isn't all that hard for most VCSes to extract 'everything since the
 last tag'.

 As a matter of fact, I found it relatively easy to write a
 library/executable to do this for Darcs, Gits, and Mercurial. (Subversion
 and CVS are both much more difficult, and I just couldn't be bothered for
 Monotone, Codeville, or Bazaar.)

 You can find it here:


 I hope y'all will consider incorporating the code into Cabal, or at least
 maybe adding some sort of option.
