For a while now I have used a script I called hgforest to deal with  
our forest of repositories
or nested repositories, this has been derived from what I posted in my  
blog entry:
   http://blogs.sun.com/kto/entry/mercurial_forest_pet_shell_trick
It's been slightly expanded and improved over time.

I'm proposing adding that script to the make/scripts directory and  
also provide an easy 'get-source.sh'
script for people to get the entire forest and avoid a hard dependence  
on the Forest Extension.

Let me know what you think.

You can try getting a complete forest doing the following:

hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/jdk7  openjdk7
cd openjdk7
wget http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ohair/openjdk7/jdk7-build-forest/webrev/jdk7-build-forest.patch
hg import --no-commit jdk7-build-forest.patch
sh ./get_source.sh
