Good. As I said, I know bzr much better than hg, and I did the mirror to 
get something started (and get used to hg, too). Since you know hg, it 
is better than you maintain this for a while for people to try it out.

Not surprising: my mirror is pure http (static-http as hg puts it), I 
can only upload files to it, meaning that I cannot launch any hg server. 
Same for bzr, by the way.

thanks for doing this,
