ncm: I may be biased as a New Yorker and one of the more than one hundred thousand people who publically protested the war in New York City before it started, but I doubt you have any idea what "most Americans" think. Maybe you find it comforting to believe that the government wouldn't behave the way it does without the support of "most Americans"? I can see why, but it's unfortunately a bit naive. If you were American, what would you have done to prevent the invasion?

I've just rewritten "local branch" support for Mercurial. These are basically clones that share a working directory, making the cost of using branches much lower. One of the more common complaints I hear about Mercurial is from git users who miss git-style branches. Hopefully this extension fixes that.
