Not AFAICS. True, I'll see what I want to see in my repo. But the
*default* output of hg log *at the public repo* will make it appear
that the concurrent commit is included in the release. In any case,
unless we freeze around the release, our developers and users need to
become graph theory/concurrency experts to interpret the output of "hg
log". I don't think that's a good idea.

OK. Once I've ported my scripts to Mercurial I'll make a call for
last-minute APPROVEs to xemacs-beta.
