hgview #137242 using alternate hg [open]

I may be mistaken but I believe there is no way to tell setup.py to use an alternate Mercurial version.

On my Ubuntu machine the version of Mercurial provided by the distribution is installed in /usr. I have installed Mercurial 2.5 under the alternate /volatile/local location, with /volatile/local/bin in my path, because Mercurial 2.5 is needed by the Evolve extension. Unfortinately Mercurial 2.5 cannot be installed as an Ubuntu package due to apt bugs/lack of documentation.

I cannot get HgView to use the Mercurial in /volatile/local instead of the one in /usr.
