Other things to mention:

- the -T option
- the [templates] section (simplifies many of your templatealias examples)
- using a path to a template file
- adding files to the template path
- multi-line assignments and quoting in config files
- hg debugcolor

Things that are just about official and long-deployed:

- generic templating of most of the other display commands
- the generic JSON and XML styles
- using -T json for discovery
- how to assign different templates with the same name to different commands

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
