>From my (admittedly limited) experience, using MQ means I can only
effectively collaborate with other people also using MQ (e.g. the
Roundup integration doesn't work if the only thing that is published
on BitBucket is a patch queue). I'll stick with named branches until
MQ becomes a builtin Hg feature that better integrates with other
