The reason is:
- it's not that hard to trigger interrupted transactions: just run out of disk space
- it takes forever to verify on large repos. Before --no-verify, I told people to C-c hg recover when the progress bar showed up. Now I tell them to pass --no-verify.
- I don't remember a single case where the verification step was useful
This is technically a change of behavior. Perhaps this would be better
suited for tweakdefaults?
