and '--summary' for qseries, qapplied, qunapplied and qtop
- combine patches with 'qfold'
- qrefresh supports pattern options to import only a subset
of the changes into a patch, to help split changes into multiple patches
- patch names for applied patches act like local tags, and can be
used in the revision arguments of any hg command
- browse a subset of the history with '--limit' and revision range arguments
- shows revision numbers as well as node hashes
- churn: graph lines of code changed per user over a range of history
- patchbomb: generate inline attachments with '-a'
