The problem with util.walkrepos() is that it relies on os.walk() 
which does not specify in which order it produces its output. I 
like to see the list of repositories in lexicographic order for 
obvious reasons. An alternative would be to walk the repos and 
store the result in a list, sort it and return it. This has the 
small disadventage of seeing no output at all for a long time on 
large trees, but I think it is the best solution when using

OK, util.walkrepos() should probably take care of this when extended 
to walk .hg directories.

I knew about util.walkrepos() but do you mean there are other 
obvious places with opportunities to reuse code ?

Thanks for the feedback,
