But this doesn't work for me via a browser, I still get the hash.

What works is eg:

$ wget http://localhost/cgi-bin/hgwebdir.cgi/reponame/archive/1.2.3.tar.bz2

But then the file I requeste is, well, 1.2.3.tar.bz2 and not

Whereas if I do:

wget http://localhost/cgi-bin/hgwebdir.cgi/reponame-1.2.3.tar.bz2

I retrieve the right filename, but it contains the web page.

One could do something like ( lines 613,614):

    if cnode == id or id == 'tip':
        arch_version = short(cnode)

But I still don't get it working for named tags.

Probably I misunderstand the whole purpose of it.
