I don't know the current state of it.  The issue as that when the
Windows Save or Open dialog was shown, TortoiseHg would spawn a thread
in our Python instance (in our process) in a way that resulted in a
deadlock or starvation of the main Wing thread.  This could affect
any app written in Python, so perhaps they have changed this.  In
any case, if it doesn't hang Wing when you show the open or save
dialog then it's probably OK.
