Firstly, there is no possible utility in your post.

Secondly, I have pointed out limitations before with articulated possible fixes, and they have always been shot down with excuses basically boiling down to, “we only use Mercurial for text, and fuck you if you want to store anything other than that”.  You personally may not have had that response, but it has been my experience with the list.

Certainly, I wouldn’t want my name associated with a rant like yours.  You look childish and silly.
