I just released PyOxidizer 0.5.0 and have updated the instructions in this file accordingly.
I don't have strong opinions about bundling templates and other resources internally versus externally. I do think it would be cool to have a fully self-contained executable. But that would require a command to write out embedded resources to the filesystem so people can modify them. That's a bit obscure.
This produces a working hg executable with templates support on Linux and Windows (I haven't tested macOS). I'd feel comfortable landing if it will unblock others to hack on things.
Modern versions of pyoxidizer don't need to vendor the pyembed crate. So abandoning this.

I submitted this series as a PoC. We likely won't move ahead with it. Although if we want to pursue prolonged Python 2.7 support, this series would likely make it easier...
This series is for stable in case it gets missed in the Phabricator UI.
Yeah, it was flagged as stable in the branch metadata. But whoever queued it didn't see that. (Perhaps we should improve hg phabread to warn on branch name mismatch?)
