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.
