Should 

    http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/bts/issue77

ever be implemented, how would one distinguish between a request to list
changesets whose commit dates matched the given date and a request to list
changesets which were added to the repo on date matching the given date?

I think the latter is probably more interesting to people than the former,
and would hate for its syntax to be obfuscated simply because it was
implemented later.
