In general, when the "Context" of a patch has such accidental dependencies,
you can pull the patch into a copy of trunk, then push from there to trunk.
Provided that there are no real dependencies (i.e. the patch doesn't touch
code that has been changed relative to trunk), this will work even though
pushing directly to trunk does not.

I don't know why pushing directly doesn't Just Work; perhaps zooko or #darcs
can explain it.
