It's just annoying that it currently lacks renames

I wonder how hard it would be to get these added. Guess I'll have to talk with Matt ;)

Because of the way we use renames when doing linux version upgrades it
would be really useful to get this added.

BTW: We now run our own bkd because bkbits.net hasn't been very reliable
recently. the unstable tree is available as
bk://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.bk If you don't want to use bk, the open source bk-client and sourcepuller
both work fine against it. I expect we'll continue to mirror stuff
through to BK regardless.

Hopefully we'll get a hg mirror on xenbits.xensource.com soon as well.

This patch may be useful :)
