"No", and "very likely barfs".  All annotation history is in the
patches, since that's the whole repo---there's not very much metadata
in darcs outside the patches.

If the common ancestor can be constructed by patching up from the
checkpoint, the merge will succeed.  Otherwise, not.  (There was some
talk of adding "backbuilder" capability, but I don't think it actually
happened yet.)
