New submission from Charles Samuels <charles at vmware.com>:
When you need to specify a revision, it's handy to copy and paste it from the
console. However, many terminal emulators will see ":" as part of a word, and
thus select both the change number and the hash as a single word, which means I
left with typing in the number or selecting just the digits.
If I could type `hg merge -r 555:012345abcdef` that means that I could just
double click on "hg heads"'s output and then paste it with the
middle-mouse-button. fast, easy, and less error prone!
