is it possible to get ioemu-remote into mercurial?

When I packaged Xen 3.3.0 for NetBSD, I run into the problem that
the git tree could not checked against a checksum because
a) the download happens during the build phase.
b) the checksum check works against one file but not against a whole tree
The checksum phase happens right after the download of the
Xen 3.3.0 source tarball.
I think, Gentoo Linux has the same problem.

I worked around this by using the in-tree ioemu.

In this respect, I would like to know if the move to the new ioemu can be done
by updating the ioemu code in the mercurial tree by taking over the sources 
from the ioemu-remote tree into mercural tree.

This would also allow to create snapshot packages from unstable
via hg archive -t tgz xen-snapshot.tar.gz in a half-automated way.
