I second all things Jordi said. I like his proposal.

That's bloody true.

This looks so so good.
I have a confession to do with shame: despite the fact that I am becoming
the go-to guy for hg-related questions at my workplace (position I earned
after sending mass-emails on how to handle this-or-that corner cases), ...

... I still didn't have the color extension enabled,
until Jordi mentioned it in the channel a week ago or so.

I mean: if I had it commented on the off-the-shelf ~/.hgrc, that
would have been so so so good.
