I didn't remember that option, so no. It was removed in https://phab.mercurial-scm.org/rHG2188f170f5b60eaddd1f1d6539de2ec07d19e1e3 (revset: add new topographical sort, 2016-06-13). All the rationale I could find is right there in the subject line (i.e. "add new topographical sort"). Was there more to it that you can remember?

I'd be fine with simply not marking it experimental from the beginning even though we know that it's not as fast/lazy as it should be.
