How to create aliases for Mercurial commands

Just like aliases in bash, you can create aliases for Mercurial commands. This functionality is available through the alias extension. Just create a new section in your Mercurial configuration file and add aliases.

For example, to create an alias to show log in graph format and another to show compact log:

[alias]
lg = log --graph
lc = log --style=compact

Even Mercurial commands can be replaced with an alias.

Tried with: Mercurial 2.0.2 and Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
