Greetings.

This is picking up a thread of 24 November last year[1].  Apologies: I  
missed the thread then and only re-found it in the archive now.

I was the OP for the small patch, which made the vc-hg-program  
configurable in vc-hg.el, rather than being hard-coded.  The decision  
to include or reject the patch is not mine, and I don't want to re- 
start a discussion, but I'd like to log the context I should have  
added at the time of the thread, for the record.

   * I'm using emacs on OS X here (specifically Aquamacs).  There,  
applications start as children of a daemon which is not a child of the  
login process, so adjusting the path that they see is slightly  
intricate, rather than being simply an adjustment to .bashrc (it  
implies configuration in two places rather than one, which is always  
bad).

   * On this platform, applications are installed in standalone  
directories per-application/version, rather than simply dropped into / 
usr/local.  Thus having a per-application install of hg is arguably  
DTRT on this platform (though this convention is weak for non-GUI  
programs).

Adding this one bit of configuration therefore has clear benefits on  
this platform.

Best wishes,

Norman

Severity: wishlist

Clean up the vc backends at some point so they are consistent in terms
of their usage of vc-BACKEND-program options.
