My version:
1) cp contrib/remote-hg/git-remote-hg ~/bin

Your version? I don't know, but it certainly will be more than one
step... may more.

What is there to share? It's 230 lines of code. And share it with
which remote helpers? And trying to do so will certainly make it
harder to setup.

As for the tests, I don't see any tests checking that the import of
tags succeeds. Oh, that's right, that is not implemented, so not
surprisingly; there are no tests for that. What does a dozen passing
tests tell you about the code? Not much. If my code had tests, the
test for importing tags would succeed, but I chose to spend my time
implementing features, and trying to make them accessible to as many
people as possible... rather than writing tests.

But fine, lets remove the tests out of the equation (150 lines), the
number of lines of code still exceeds 3000.
