comment Init scripts per user
@Rich: Indeed it does; I don't mind seeing a password prompt when I fire up my shell. It's just that the mount command is pretty complicated and I didn't want to put in extra effort of executing a helper script.

comment Invoking mercurial commands for all directories in a given directory
But then what about ls | xargs -t -I {} mv {} {}.old? Anyways, I've found the solution and it is to explicitly use placeholders in xargs. Thanks for guiding me on the right way, I'll accept your answer since it also does what I was after. :)

comment Invoking mercurial commands for all directories in a given directory
@Norman: Thanks for the clarification. But the question again is, why does ls | xargs grep "something" works but ls | xargs hg status doesn't?

Won't it be possible with a one-liner using the xargs combination? If not, I'd appreciate if you could explain why my one liner doesn't work. Thanks.
