I looked on the core mailing list and saw a version control discussion
but did not see your comparison.
As for features at least as of tla 1.1 I do not believe this to
be the case. Feel free to prove me wrong.
It was mentioned in some of your discussion that darcs uses
reverse format patches. I am leary of that because it was
exactly that ``optimization'' in RCS which made CVS suck at branches.
For myself I am branch happy. And I don't think I like the idea of
having to create another copy of a repository to have a branch. Besides
which darcs does not appear to have the merging capabilities that are
present in arch.
I will keep darcs in mind. It always interesting to see another version
