on binary export and import

I noticed the following note on Wiki:

Import is not fully functional

Currently it ignores the Node ID and Parent fields in the export file so
keeping disparate Mercurial repositories in sync via email or something other
method of exchanging patches will work poorly when changes need to be merged
instead of just tacked on.

The plan here is to allow export to a native binary format. 

I wonder if some priority can be put on realising this. IMHO, it's the one
thing that would make Mercurial one big step closer to being perfect. In fact,
it is the one last thing that stopping me from rolling it out in my work place.
We deal quite a lot of binary files, and push/pull may not the best solution
due to constrain in our development environment.
