Granted svn can be a pain to set up, but is Mercurial generally  
accepted by the Open Source community? Right now, if someone wants to  
pass around a new Textmate bundle or Rails plugin, they point to an  
svn repo and the deal is done. I haven't looked into Mercurial too  
carefully, but if it's better and can be accessed by svn users  
transparently (riiiigggt :) then it could be a godsend.

Any thoughts on that?
