Using vimdiff with mercurial on Windows

Using vimdiff with mercurial

I had the devil of a time getting vimdiff and mercurial to play nicely with with each other on Windows for visual diffs. It worked great on posix systems using instructions from the mercurial wiki both to diff single files as well as a multiple files. But on Windows, it would only work for single files, giving me rather strange errors when trying to diff multiple files. So, I spent a bit of time getting it to work.
