When recording or amending patches, darcs prompts "Do you want to record 
these changes?" as the final confirmation.  It would be convenient if it 
offered the following choices (as `darcs changes -i` does):

  v: view this patch in full
  p: view this patch in full with pager
  x: view a summary of this patch

When performing a long record operation, it's useful to see a single diff 
of everything that will be in the proposed patch before accepting it.  
During this kind of high-level, final patch review, I often spot extra 
hunks that should/shouldn't have been included.

Sounds useful.  See also http://wiki.darcs.net/Development/NewFeature for 
the kind of thinking we think is useful (this seems innocuous enough not 
to be worth going all out, but basically the desire for Darcs to feel 
simple through and through, no matter how powerful it gets)
