In the referenced thread you wrote:

  darcs: I don't like its commutable patch theory

What is not to like about this theory? Could you explain?

In practice it seems to work very well. I have used darcs on
Windows, linux with Axiom and on Solaris in another project.
My experience is that the merging of patches in darcs is
superior to cvs and tla (arch), resulting in fewer conflicts
to resolve.

I do not know of any limitations of darcs that would prevent
it from being used in the same way that tla is now used in
