With pcl-cvs, M-x cvs-update brings up a buffer, kind of like what hg
status would produce. This buffer allows you to do some simple
operations on the files that are listed. "=" produces a diff of the
file. "c" asks for a commit message and commits the changes. And so
on. I was kind of expecting the same from hg-status. I think pcl-cvs
is completely integrated with vc, so C-x v = uses cvs diff.
M-x git-status (from git.el) does something like this, so driving git
this way is very natural to me.

I don't know if there's a newer version.
intro to mercurial.el that looks like it might be helpful for you.
Yes, this is helpful. Thanks for the tip.
It would be nice if hg-status worked as I expected it to work. The code
looks like it checks to see if there's an .hg directory, and if there's
not, it supposed to ask you for a path. Instead it signals an error.
Haven't figured out what's causing that.
