I agree. At the very least, each bug should return a result when 'hg log
-k <bugid>' is used.

In general, it is better to stick to small, minimal changesets as this
makes it easier to pinpoint the changes that caused a particular problem
at a later date. A little extra time now often pays off in the long run,
and is also a courtesy to your fellow developers.
