I thought this choice of tense was strange in itself, because it reads like an adjective: `hg state --frozen` seems to say "list all frozen changesets". Ideally we'd come up with an imperative verb for the command, something like: `hg setstate --frozen REV` (although I'll admit setstate is a weak suggestion). Something that doesn't make `hg st` ambiguous would be nice too...
