Yes, thanks.  That was also pointed out by Chris, in this thread.

Thanks, I take a look.  As Simon Marlow mentioned, this however does  
not solve our problem.  I just fell into that trap myself, because I  
accidentally kept that hook on a file I was working on, and had a  
very hard time filtering out the actual changes when I recorded my  
darcs patch.  Hooking this feature in with highlight-changes-mode  
might give us a way to find out which lines were actually modified,  
but even then the best way to integrate this would be with darcs or  
some darcs mode.  I use darcsum.el, which works rather well, but is  
far from perfect.

I take a look.
