[issue744] unclear what head to pass to "merge"

New submission from Charles Samuels <charles at vmware.com>:

The UI doesn't do a great job of indicating what head I need to pass as the -r 
option of merge:

$ hg heads
changeset: the changes I just pulled

changeset: the last commit I made locally

changeset: another "spare" head I'm neglecting for now

But it doesn't say which is my "current" and which are the "other mergables"

Maybe it would be better if `hg merge` showed a list of candidates to merge 
with (which means all heads except for the working one)
