  As an example of how weird the basectx.__new__ is: whenever you create
  a workingctx, basectx.__new__ gets called first. Since our __new__ has
  a "changeid" argument as second parameter, when create the
  workingctx(repo, text="blah"), the text gets bound to
  "changeid". Since a string isn't a basectx, our __new__ ends up not
  doing anything funny, but that's still very confusing code.
  Another case is metadataonlyctx.__new__(), which I think exists in
  order to prevent metadataonlyctx.__init__'s third argument
  (originalctx) from being interpreted as a changeid in
  basectx.__new__(), thereby getting reused.
  Let's move this to repo.__getitem__ instead, where it will be pretty
  obvious what the code does.
  After this patch, changectx(ctx) will be an error (it will fail when
  trying to see if it's a 20-byte string).

  +1, but I don't remember why we made that hack.
  @smf Any thoughts?

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.

  That's 2 of us who think this is a good idea. I'm going to queue it.
  If @smf knows of a reason why this is bad, we can always drop it or revert it.
