It would be pretty cool if I could view a Darcs patch file in the same
way I can view a recorded change. That is, as if I had applied it, but
without actually having to apply it. Perhaps in the form of an extra
switch --apply PATCHFILE (which could be given more than once) for
commands like changes and diff.
Sounds like a good idea. I will try to implement it (no guarantees on
when I will finish). I was considering an approach that writes the
output to the stdout with a flag that allows the change to be written to
a provided path or to show it in $EDITOR (not sure if this workin on
Windows though). For now I will restrict the scope to single files
although I will have in mind that in the future, allowing that for full
directoires might be nice.
