--source-branch sounds good
(--source-branch could even be specified in [defaults], provided mercurial would gracefully disregard it without moaning if it had been specified for a non local source repo.)
My plan for --source-branch was to do the same as
hg clone -u <branch of src's parent> src dest
That aside, we need 'clone -u' for completeness/versatility's sake. We should implement that first and see if it has a chance to make it into 1.4. Matt's messages seem to hint at that.
I guess `hg clone -u . src dest` should cover most scenarios where people would have wanted --source-branch.
So . is in scope. Neat.
$ hg -R thg-stable par changeset: 3536:cd50b769e235 branch: stable tag: 0.8.3 user: Steve Borho <ste...@borho.org> date: Tue Oct 06 22:07:28 2009 -0500 summary: hgtk: correct arguments to dispatch() when launching qct

Planned (faking output):
$ hg clone -u . thg-stable thg-stable-bug1235 updating to branch stable 297 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
For folks who want to put "-u ." into [defaults], we should make sure that -U still disables it.
-U should gracefully and silently override -u without mercurial moaning at it (or at least not moan by default, i.e. without --verbose).
Disagree. Again, this is one of the fundamental problems with defaults: once you've set a default, there's no way to bypass it. Don't use 'em. And please don't suggest them to other people. Instead, make a new command:
[alias] wclone = clone -u .
