Your favorite bug

i want to browse the mercurial web gui, tip branch. and send a link to
a file, tag xxx. or tip. but while browsing it always switches to a
changeset number. when sending the link, one has to hand-craft the
link to the tag, or tip.

(and yes, we are aware that somebody might remove a file later on and
a link to that file in tip might become inconsistent :) )

so i wonder if this would be a bug to file, or it is the desired
