some quick toughts results in these:

no need for handshaping the ChangeLog

no need for cp -r slime slime.foo.bar to separate unrelated changes if
you are experimenting with something that needs further testing and is
not yet meant to be committed. also no need to move patches between
those slime.foo.bar dirs to have a local merged HEAD for daily use and
for testing all the pending changes.

darcs rollback (plus darcs move and easy branching, but they are not
that important)

no more hand-editing and mailing of cvs diffs (you can even have a
slime_public branch that can accept patches through http)
