[issue1965] Add an option to heads to indicate all heads

New submission from Bryan O'Sullivan <bos at serpentine.com>:
At the moment, there doesn't seem to be a way, with "hg heads", to find the
set of all heads on all active branches.
I ran into a problem today where the default branch had two heads, but one of
those heads was a parent of a named branch. Since that head had a child,
wasn't listed by "hg heads", and I only found out by accident (by running "hg
heads default") that it even existed.
I really think that "hg heads" should be printing all branch heads by
default, regardless of whether they have children that are on different named
branches, but given that I don't expect that to fly, a "--all" option would
be good enough.
