What you guys really want is git ;-)
git's branches are just like hg's heads, but with persistent names. Once they've been merged, they can be disposed of. That's really exactly what you want for temporary projects.
Git is significantly more difficult to learn that Hg, but at this point, it seems that the rest of the world has moved to git anyway (even here at Mozilla, a bastion of Hg, half of my colleagues prefer working with a semi-official git mirror synced daily...) so in practice, Hg may now be a more of a barrier to entry, than Git.
