Yes, that works for me too. The familiar VC mode commands handle hg
just fine, and I like that. But sometimes I want to see the whole
directory like pcl-cvs does, and mercurial.el doesn't work for me.
But that's ok. The latest dvcs with some minor tweaks appears to work
fine with hg repos, so that's good enough for me.
