Yes please.

For not being nobody anymore: What should I use instead of mq? 
I hope it is supported by gui tools. (mq is supported by several ones
like tortoisehg, gquilt, ...)

What is an alternative command for strip?

Maybe mq could be deprecated for one release before being removed?
(Maybe with a message when loading.)

And at least this page should get a hint at the start:
there are also many other sites refering mq. Examples:
http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/HandlingRejects#Rejects_when_working_with_MQ (outdated? does rebase work with applied patches?)
