           Summary: Extend the {latesttagdistance} and {latesttag}
                    keywords to take a pattern to match for the tag name
          Severity: feature
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Windows
          Reporter: swpalmer at gmail.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 2.9
         Component: Mercurial
           Product: Mercurial

The idea is to use the latest tag matching a given pattern.  This would allow
the distance measurement to be made against a more specific set of tags.  E.g.
the latest "release" tagged vs. the latest general purpose tag.  Or if there
are more than one component within the repo that use their own tags, like
"App-1.2.3" vs "Library-1.1.1" if I do a new build of "Library" I want to use
the distance to the latest tag matching "Library*".
