You can send Bram a bundle of your changes, see 'bundle' command at:
For example using the command:
hg bundle nikolai.hg http://vim.hg.sourceforge.net/hgweb/vim/vim
The 'nikolai.hg' bundle file includes all the changesets not in Bram
sourceforge repository. Assuming all your changes are in a branch,
Bram may unbundle the 'nikolai.hg' file into his repository (or
another working clone) and merge your branch into his code.
