[MonoDevelop] Mercurial support

D'oh! For reference, it helps if you don't just assume you've got 
Mercurial 1.9 ;) I'm normally quite cutting-edge with packages, but I 
must have decided I didn't need the openSUSE SCM repo and could manage 
with the stock Hg 1.7 from openSUSE 11.4.

I'm now getting all the commands, and "Review Changes" kinda works. On a 
copy of your plugin I get "." changing for all projects (which "hg 
status" doesn't report), but "Review Changes" on one project works. 
Commit seems to give me three copies of ".", which then fails on the commit.

Should testers sign up for Fogbugz accounts on the site and report bugs? 
Or are you aware of issues already?
