This is important to note: all this change does is forbid the creation of
new tags/branches/bookmarks with integer names. Existing ones can still be
retrieved using revset queries. (It has always been the case that if you
try "hg log -r33" and you have a bookmark, branch, or tag named "33",
you're gonna have a bad time.)
