That was my point.  This has been discussed a few times on the list, and
I recently added it to the TODO list in vc.el. If anyone wants to
volunteer and sit down and do it, it would be great.

checkout vs checkout --track
pull, fetch and the 50 options that each has. 
But I doubt that this is the right place to discuss these things.

BTW, if anyone wants to see the difference in UI between git and
Mercurial/Bzr, just look at the commands that are run to implement
the VC interface in vc-{git,hg,bzr}.el.
