I find tortoisehg to be too confusing, so just use the command-line
tools.  I don't know if I use this stuff right but here's my workflow:

cd some-directory
hg clone ssh://hg@hg.python.org/stackless

hg clone stackless stackless-32
cd stackless-32
hg branch 3.2-slp
hg update
cd ..

hg clone stackless stackless-27
cd stackless-27
hg branch 2.7-slp
hg update
cd ..

For the most part from then, it is just committing, pushing and
pulling changesets.  The only thing I use tortoiseHG for is to
cherry-pick revisions as it has a useful option to do that, and doing
it from the command line is an enigma.
