1) It sends binary Mercurial bundles, not textual patches. These are
more effective at preserving branching, merging, character sets, etc.
Hashes should always be preserved. On the other hand, the resulting
emails are not human-readable; they'll just have a MIME attachment.
2) It can automatically figure out which changesets need to be sent to
the remote (as hg outgoing/hg bundle do).
3) All changesets are sent in a single bundle in a single message.
The goal is that a person can just type "hg send" and The Right Thing
happens. We're not quite that automated yet, but I think it's
This would solve the #1 feature that I miss from Darcs.
