I should clarify: we create a draft commit, bundle it and its draft
ancestors, and then strip the temporary commit. That means that the shelved
commit is not present in history; does not interfere with mq; but still
uses normal Mercurial machinery (including support for merges and
conflicts!) instead of something ad hoc like patches.
