Not necessarily. There's projects with more code and less
functionality than their alternatives.

Not for me.

I don't care. When I need that I'll implement that with probably much less code.

Only a dozen of them. If I write the same tests for my solution would
you be happier? I didn't think so.

Like this one?
I don't see any tests for that.

So you say, my impression is different.

Different people have different needs.
Without an easy way to setup, remote-hg is useless to me.

So your idea of collaboration is accept that your code is awesome, and
my code sucks, and that I should fix your code, and throw my code to
the trash, while you do absolutely nothing but complain about the
whole situation. I have at least looked at your code. Have you even
looked at mine?
I've done my part in making my code easily available and ready for
review. I will not reply to you anymore until you show your
willingness to collaborate that you seem to demand for me, and:
1) Point to a remote-hg branch that is independent of msysgit stuff,
or any other irrelevant stuff
2) Is based on top of a recent version of git
