I thought I'd give hg-git a go, I found an easy way to install it here:

I cloned one of the Phobos clones on github and played around with it a 
bit.  Works great so far, everything seems to work.  Not tried to push 
or check in, but I suppose it would work just fine. One of Mercurial's 
strengths is really how easy Python makes it to create extensions and tools.
