I was able to augment the TortoiseHg build setup[1] such that it could also
generate binary installers for hg and hg-stable.  It's a tad manual at the
moment, but could be automated pretty simply.  The resulting installer is
approximately the same size as previous standalone Mercurial installers,
so I think I've kept the package clean.

I've uploaded my first attempt to the same location we've been hosting
our nightly builds:
