Yes you did. Yes I was interested. No, I did not do it yet. I always
had something more fun to do. Yes I know at some point I will probably
have to do it :P

Actually I am a bit confused because even if I set the HGPATH
variable, when I run TortoiseHg from source it always seems to pickup
the mercurial instalation in C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\mercurial.
It'd be great if it was possible to use the one provided by Matt
instead. That would be really nice!
