My understanding is that a repository contains all the changesets. And 
each changeset is just a patch, which is available directly (hg diff), 
or via http://hg.ojn/ (which itself is perfectly searchable with 
Google). Why would one need another copy of the changes nowdays?

Whilst exploring the history of webrev versions for a particular fix 
does indeed help sometimes, this looks quite inapplicable for external 
contributions since the internal robot is not available to them. And 
submitting all the versions manually through a Sun employee seems sort 
of burdensome.
