Are you looking for the ability to search history easier? I'll agree
that hgweb doesn't do that very well (that single textbox does work and
I think it accepts python regexes to search through history). However,
since history is local, hg comes with a command called "hg grep" which
is rather useful in searching through history (tortoisehg provides a
datamine feature to access this functionality through a gui). Also
something to consider is the "hg bisect" command which allows you to
find when a change appeared first through a interactive search.
What else does bonsai do that is missing in Mercurial?
I think bzr has pretty much the same functionality here anyways. Btw, if
that isn't enough, you can always register a branch at bitbucket
(www.bitbucket.org) for hg or launchpad for bzr (https://launchpad.net/)
