It's probably worth pointing out for those who are more familiar with 
git, that if you want to have local changes and combine them with 
upstream changes without adding a separate merge changeset, the rebase 
extension is pretty handy.[1]

It ships with mercurial, you just need to enable it. Then you can do:

   hg pull --rebase

which updates as well.

Apparently it goes a bit against the Mercurial philosophy of indelible 
changesets[2] but you might find it helps, especially if you're used to git.

Another approach is to manage patch queues (mq extension) but it's a bit 
more of a hassle when you're just doing minor spec tweaks.
