This command seems only useful for debugging purposes.  Why do you want it?

I don't want to add commands we don't have to, because this increases
our apparent complexity.  There are people who will count the number of
commands and conclude that Mercurial is easier to use than Bazaar.  I
don't want this getting worse.

If we need to make this functionality public, can we stick it somewhere
else like the bzr --version output?
