Hi. SVN has followed command, which is currently useful for me:
	svn log --limit 1 <REPO>	

where <REPO> can be url to remote repository (http://, svn://,

It retrieves last log message from VCS.

Is it any way to get same results for mercurial (without cloning repo).
Remote repository can be not under my control so no server-side
hooks/scripts are allowed.

Any way to get same behaviour from mercurial? As for me, parsing HTTP
output by hands is not good solution.

WBR, Dmitry
