I currently do it by cleaning up all unrecorded changes, making a copy of the
patch description, darcs unrecord, darcs record --all --ask-deps, then re-paste
in the patch description.  Similarly I wish for darcs amend-record to
optionally prompt me for a new patch description.

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten a "me too" in the two years since it has been
open, or had another dupe in the system. It's something I've expected to be
there myself at various times.

Just needed it today, so, here is my loud and clear "ME TOO" ;)
It is really surprising that this wasn't added when amend-record got the 
edit-... option.

Merging in issue1451.  I'm also promoting this to a feature because it seems
quite clear that this would be a good thing to have.  

This would probably make for a very good newbie bug: both relatively easy (I
believe) with high satisfaction :-), so I'll mark it as a target for 2.4 in case
nobody gets to it before the next darcs hacking sprint.

I'm working on this, though I only expect to get it mostly done.

I saw "mostly" because my implementation won't allow one to remove existing
dependencies, just add new ones - SelectChanges doesn't have any facility I'm
aware of to default certain answers to yes, which is how I think that would have
to work.
