I think people familiar with the mercurial code would find this is a much
easier job than I will. :)

Remote login. :)

You're probably referring to having your workspace on a laptop's local disk
and carry that home along with you. That's dangerous - Google didn't allow
code on local disks (for fear of laptops getting stolen and the code falling
into the wrong hands). Even if Google did allow this, and I didn't want to
do a remote login, I could always have another repository on my home machine
and do a pull from my repository at work. I would still run the danger of
loosing code changes I don't back up on my home machine though. So in
reality, I'd just prefer to do a remote login and work using my NFS mounted
workspace at Google.
