"hg incoming --bundle" doesn't work

When I'm trying to create a bundle of incoming changesets it doesn't save it anywhere.

I would be quite useful it this feature worked, because it is used in TortoiseHg's Repository Browser.

    This isn't fixable. incoming --bundle depends on the server sending an hg bundle, which Subversion won't do. We'd spend a ton of time constructing the bundle (and we'd actually commit all the revs, so we could bundle them and then strip them).

    So if it won't be fixed, it would be nice if hgsubversion reported an error when "hg incoming --bundle ..." is called with an SVN-remote. (MercurialEclipse is using this and when used with hgsubversion it always reports an empty list of incoming changesets and no error because hgsubversion silently ignores the '--bundle' argument. Took me a while to dig this out.)
