If you are interested in this approach. you can check out Iolaus,
which is David Roundy's attempt at getting Darcs-style revision
control in Git: https://github.com/droundy/iolaus. I think that it
relies on you, the user, to accurately specify which patches a new one
of your own depends on, which is a bit of a limitation.
