And I would, of course, like to see the rexec extension integrated. I
am currently finishing this (mainly waiting for whether
.hg/hgrc.d/*.rc will make it into 1.0). It would allow people to clone
repos and manage server-side patch queues with the special `hg rclone,
rqinit, rdrop` commands. It already supports cloning at a specified
revision. Thus one can easily automate, for example, setting up a temp
server-side clone and apply a given patch queue to it so reviewers can
access it.
