E.g. here's an address of browseable repository at specific commit time.

If you'd try to download it with hg clone https://bitbucket.org/lyro/evil/src/8cbfd51, you'd get absolutely different revision, most probably it's just the latest code.

    The fact that you can clone using any url that starts with the location of the repository is actually because of backwards compatibility and old url routing. When you pull from https://bitbucket.org/username/repo/literally_anything_can_go_here everything after the username/repo portion is ignored when routing the URLs. However, we strongly recommend not using this feature and always cloning from the base URL.

    Cloning a specific revision has to be done at the VCS client level, not ours.
