Well, there should be good support for Eclipse (through 
MercurialEclipse), NetBeans (they use hg themselves, after all), and the 
IDE-version of Komodo 5.0+ also includes hg support. I suppose other, 
more Python-specific IDEs might be following suit as Python switches.

Yeah, that won't be necessary. The canonical solution is to have just 
one Unix account called hg, to which we can add public keys.
