#2500: Options to the try command are not optional
Reporter:  refl       |      Owner:
    Type:  undecided  |     Status:  new
Priority:  major      |  Milestone:  undecided
 Version:  0.8.7p1    |   Keywords:
 When run with {{{--vc hg}}}, the try command fails to handle some of its
 options correctly. The result is that you must specify them when you would
 expect that they are optional. Also, the error messages you get are not
 very helpful.

 You must specify {{{--repository}}}. Otherwise, the hg log command is not
 properly generated, resulting in an error.

 When using {{{-c ssh}}}, you must specify {{{-u}}}. Otherwise, you get an
 exception: {{{exceptions.TypeError: Arguments contain a non-string

 When you don't specify {{{-b}}}, you get an exception:
 {{{exceptions.TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable}}}
