Ah, right. I've spent too much time on emacs-devel and python-dev
where they use "branch" for any separate line of development. What I
had in mind was a separate repository.
Yes, avoid the Mercurial "named branch" misfeature. It is confusing.
If you have a long-lived line of development (eg, the GTKv2 port) and
want to communicate your changes to others, a separate repository is
recommended. If you have a number of one-off patches that aren't
ready for submission and don't need to be communicated to others, use
Mercurial queues (the mq extension). Intermediate cases require some
judgment, but in general the separate repo is a good way to go.
