No, I know that mercurial definitely has some very strong points, though
I've seen a lot of arguing over their relative merits.  I'm slightly
nervous about the name-based repository layout though, as it's such a
horrible lose in the case of CVS -- git's "content based" storage is
very appealing in that sense.

I'm also slightly confused by the relationship between git and mercurial
-- can mercurial clone/pull/push from/to a git tree and vice-versa?



Run away!  Run away!
