..you do not yet support subrepos properly, which is causing lots of
suffering and confusion that we can't fix it on our end.

As far as I know, folks that are currently failing here includes
BitBucket, Google Code, Kiln, Rhodecode, CodePlex and basically
everything except hgweb itself.

Please hack something in pronto, like something that redirects foo/bar
