As Kurt asked earlier - what for? Because it sucks a bit less? I'm more
git user myself, but hg is OK. Even if git sucks less, so what?

I thought that people here value their time more. Changing tools as
soon as something is becoming 'suckless' sucks. As stated before, maybe
it would be better to pursue better hg implementations? People here are
always interested with code, good code. Curing one disease with
another is not really helpful.
