hgit was also used by git-viz/hg-viz (even if it has been some time that
hg-viz has not been updated)

I just work on the 0.7 version. I made a 0.7-3 debian package on my
webpage[1]. With what you tell just before, I am not sure I will send it
to the debian archive. In this package, I installed hgit as a
system-wide extension.
Even if you remove hgit as you just tell, some of the patches can still
be interesting. There is :

# FAQ_subst.patch (357b) : add a pointer on the web page in the package
# copyright_in_manpage.patch (911b) : correct copyright symbol
# bash_completion_is_not_a_script.patch (395b) : no #! first line
# system_wide_hgrc_dir.patch (2 kb) : hg reads
   /etc/mercurial/hgrc.d/*.rc too
# manage_import_extensions.patch (3 kb) : trap missing extensions
   and display a warning (instead of a backtrace). Also add the
   name of the extension providing new commands in "hg --help"
# hgit_is_not_a_script.patch (389b) : no #! first line
