That's good to know.  I would second the suggestion that some others
here have made: that this (a full get) be the default behavior.  It
will certainly come as a big surprise to both prior users of Darcs,
and users of other DVCS, if it isn't.  And one high-profile data loss
as a result will be a big black eye for the Darcs community.

Perhaps darcs get --partial should activate this new behavior?  That
would be a very logical change, IMHO.
