I've written this up in a form I hope gives a pretty clear plan for the
groundwork here:

This also proposes some UI for this feature (the hg state command and
the state: field in the log), which we'd been mostly handwaving to this
point.

I think some people at the sprint missed the discussion of the local
feature, so please take a look at that.

I've mostly left out Pierre-Yves very interesting model for changeset
management (briefly discussed at the end) as it would double the length
of the document to go into a similar level of detail and states need to
be implemented first at any rate.

Similarly, Henrik and Martin's work on dead heads shows up here as
'abandoned heads' mostly to illustrate that it's an orthogonal feature.
