Help. I've screwed up my repo again, and I have no idea how.

Maybe it would be useful having a helper setup script that is able to
build up an hgrc file for you by answering some simple questions, such
as name, address, favourite editor route, favourite diff and merge tool
or verbosity level. That way the magic could go away from the core
application and the installation and initial steps would be easier.
Later, you can tweak the hgrc by hand or could use that script to save
to a different file.
Probably this could be a nice way to contribute for someone that thinks
this would be nice to have :).
