we are using mercurial for our php framework. it works great but is a  
little harder to understand in the first place. being able to do local  
version control is a big win, i think. we also think about moving all  
our projects from svn to mercurial around next summer...
svn is great. but mercurial is better with merging things, which we do  
from time to time.
