One immediate thing that I'm missing from Bazaar is that 'bzr commit' invokes my editor and always shows me a 'diff -u' in the commit message buffer. This is incredibly handy because I don't have to remember to do the diff in a different window, and I always have all the information I want right there to craft the commit message. It doesn't look like this is possible with 'hg commit' though, right?
What you are asking for is available in TortoiseHg which absolutely rocks (if you are not allergic to the idea of a graphical tool).
You can even select indvidually inside a file which lines to commit or not. A bit risky but very handy when you have a few oneliners to commit or not to commit.
