I'd just download Mercurial source and build it. I'm not entirely sure
the package you want exists in amd64, did you try backports?

If I recall correctly, there were some annoying python problems in that
version too (amd64), which is another good reason to build your own.
There was a very good reason it wasn't packaged in amd64 but I can't
remember clearly enough to explain it, but could also be mistaken.

May save a few hours if you just build it :)
