It will be.

It's still a little too crude for publication. I've been building it
from the bottom up i.e. making components that will eventually be put
together to make a usable tool. Most of the effort so far has gone into
a file tree display (with status) and provision of mechanisms to execute
hg commands on selected files. That's mostly finished -- just needs
some mods so that diff/revert can handle the case where a working
directory has two parents.
The next component will be something to display useful information about
the working directory e.g. branch, parents, etc. After that I think
that it will be in good enough shape for publication -- although still a
long way short of what I hope it can eventually be. But I think
feedback from potential users will be crucial from that point on.
I'll try to have something available within the next week.
