So it would be .hgrules/<extensionname>? With the extension then
defining the contents of the rule file?

An alternative would be to go one level deeper and have:


If an extension rule file appeared in the first subdirectory then hg
would refuse to operate on the repository without that extension being

I guess something like that might be nice to have, but the support for
negative filtering and versioned rule definitions is all we really need
from a python-dev point of view.
