This form of dependency tracking is done manually in Git via
topic/feature branches.  Undoing the patch would the mean undoing the
merge, which can be done via "git rebase -i".  (The -i part is just
for a nicer user interface).  Now whether manual dependency tracking
is better than darcs' automatic tracking is another question.
