Thanks again Mads. BTW, if dirs. / files are actually added into
versioning by explicit "hg add" commands (or similar for cvs svn etc.)
what function does the "hg init" serve? i.e. what is done on dirs (or
subdirs or files) that are "inited" (under the path that was given to
hg init) but not "added"?

Just curious.
