Sure. Although my personal development style isn't nearly so neat.
What's a good way to handle this? Just clone the tree again and redo the
changes in the desired configuration? Also would you prefer that I make
these in a tree other than the main stable repo?

I un-nest two functions that create temporary clones because they are
useful outside of extdiff. For example my gui extension lets you "view"
old revisions and uses these functions to make copies. In fact the one
function that makes a temporary clone of an old revision is probably
useful enough to put in hg proper.

Argg, sorry.
