No special version, just the latest from the webrev repo. Use the -f 
switch to include sub-repos. For historical reasons it's named "-f", for 
forest, but it is now converted to use the tree extension. (I did ran 
into an issue with the new tree extension support since I used nawk 
instead of gawk; a patch for that is under review.)

I have no idea. :-) I think you'll need to use patch, since mercurial do 
not know about subrepos internally. Is there a problem with using patch? 
Maybe the trees extensions will need to implement a timport..?
