If the extension becomes a part of the tarball (and thus a part of the 
mercurial package) we would get a nice collision between the two 
packages and we would avoid confusion and it would be obvious that the 
conflict had to be handled somehow - for example by letting the 
mercurial package automatically replace the extension package.

I agree that manually dropping files in hgext is a very bad idea.
