Great idea.  Even better would be if contributers used a common syntax
for flagging stable patches.  May I humbly propose:

  hg ci -m"(stable) foo: don't crash"

resulting in

  [PATCH] (stable) foo: don't crash

The catch: it's up to whoever reviews/approves/commits/pushes to
remove the "(stable) " prefix.
