Why don't you reduce that to:
1. invoke a simple script that also makes a tag
And that script can simply be:
hg tag $1
hg co $1
# do the rest of my build
My Mercurial release script actually goes a step further:
rm -rf release-build-$1
hg clone -q . release-build-$1 || exit 0
hg tag $1
hg sign -k mpm $1 || exit 0
hg co $1
If for some reason, something goes wrong with the release script, I can
just nuke the build directory.
