It's unlikely that I'll try that. But it's good to know that this stamps
feature is unwanted on Mercurial.

Veracity repos will be full of those stamps, since people like them.

As soon as someone tries to convert a veracity (=vv) repo to hg, they
will notice that they'll lose their stamps. So people will stay on vv.
Clever marketing strategy.

And they will also lose their changeset comments (another nice feature
of vv). More clever.

I'm not saying we must copy veracity. Just wanted to let you folks know
what's happening elsewhere. And I think these features might make
veracity attractive.
