Yes, another good question: does it deserve a separate command ?

I think we need to get back on the different use cases:
- custom labeling of nightly build => templates will give the flexibility
- in which release this changeset made it ? => hg id --contains
- on which tag this changeset is based on ? => hg id --nearest

For the last two, I think we need a kind of --all, to know if this changeset
is based on the merge of my stable and experimental branch, or jus one of
them. Respectively, is this fixed noth in both my forward experimental and
stable releases.

Any other use case ? Can the --match tag be dropped ?

PS: I thought that feature freeze is before the sprint day, and that the
    sprint day is just for bug fix
