Yeah, mercurial.

Implemented now. I'm not handling the 'tip' revision, but most likely
it's also the '.' revision. In this case a fake 'master' bookmark will
be created to track that revision.

Yeah, you can get that now. If there are no branches or bookmarks,
'master' will point to '.'.

As for your preference of not tracking branches, there's a new option:

% git config --global remote-hg.track-branches false

So you don't have to use hg-git-compat mode :)
