As a mercurial developer I'd be very interested in knowing more
specifically what functionality hg is missing. The big two pieces I'm
aware of are git-style branches and rebase support. We've just gotten
a nice rebase extension out of the google summer of code, and I have
an extension called "localbranch" that provides a sort of git branch.
