  I'm not worried about it. It only makes a difference for treemanifests, and the change is just about the order in changegroup and (therefore) the order in which we write revlogs. We don't have much testing of treemanifests and we rarely check the exact format in a changegroup. We do print out a debug message on line 482 that could be used to see a difference before and after this patch, but I just checked that test-treemanifest.t doesn't pass --verbose. Still, I wouldn't mind if some Facebooker tried to run their treemanifest tests (in hgexperimental) against a version with this patch applied.

Good idea. I'm pretty sure that should be safe (but perhaps tests will prove me wrong).
