Indeed, after reading it, that's the most sense I've been able to make
of Mercurial's strange branching.  I guess it boils down to the
following rough heuristic:

- if you want to dink around locally, but don't want to publish your
  branches (yet), default to bookmarks using "hg bookmark"

- once you want a branch to be public, consider making a "real"
  branch using "hg branch"

- if you want complete isolation in case you screw up something like
  merging, use a clone

I still prefer Git's way, but at least I'm not left scratching my
head when I have to play with Mercurial branches.

Thanks, all.
