But darcs applies patches according to their dependencies, not according
no when you're merging them, right?

So if I pull buildbot-0.7.4 and make branch-sendtry, and you make
branch-newgui, we both record a patch that adds to repo.ChangeLog.  You
merge newgui first, but darcs knows that the patch I added to sendtry's
repo.Changelog comes *before* your "removed repo.ChangeLog for newgui,
merged to trunk" patch, so it tries to merge it in there.

I think.
