New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:

Mercurial currently has an __version__ module, which then has an version 
attribute. This is unfortunate, since the common convention is that the 
version attribute should be called __version__.

I'd like to request that mercurial changes to put an __version__ attribute 
into __init__.py; this version should conform to PEP 386.
