Branch commit in MacHg

Note: I believe this is related to "Closing branches in MacHg" -, as they both involve making a commit with empty contents.

When I was showing a co-worker how to set-up a 'release' branch aside from his 'default' branch, he was trying to use MacHg to do so, and though we found how to name the branch, but the commit button was disabled, as no files had changed. We ended-up doing it from command line, but is there any way to commit a a new branch without changing files like this?

It would be a great feature to have, if it's not already possible. Perhaps have the option to 'force' a commit? Perhaps through a hidden menu item (i.e. - hold Option to change "Commit" to "Force commit"), or similar.

    Happily this has already been added in the new Beta! I will be releasing the new version 1.0 shortly which has this feature! Please trial the new beta to see that this does what you are asking for...!
