I understand them. Whether that is a good sign, I don't know ;-)

Will send a patch based upon (my understanding) of them shortly.

r is defined inside the try block, but returned outside, so
perhaps just:

            self.commitctx = self.kwcommitctx
                return super(kwrepo, self).commit(*args, **opts)
                del self.commitctx

similar to  deleting the locks in kwcommitctx.
