Darcs has a feature to deal with patches that are unrelated in patch theory
but are related from the user's point of view. When you record you can use
--ask-deps to specify dependent patches. These dependencies are then
artificially enforced in commute (where dependencies are normally detected).
Note: I'm not trying to advocate anything here, I just wanted to let you
know that others noticed this and added a feature for it long ago.
