Minor technical nit:  while I agree with you that it makes more sense to
get your forest directly from the MASTER (jdk7/jdk7) forest, you should
be able to get the exact same forest tagged jdk7-b26 from any of the
forests that feed from jdk7/jdk7 (tl/awt/hotspot/build) and are
reasonably up-to-date with the MASTER.  They should all point to exactly
the same tagged changeset.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's my understanding of how
Mercurial works.
