Still, it's not as good a choice as git, *because* it's less popular
than git, in particular, among Emacs developers.  You could argue that
at least three very senior developers (if RMS isn't the third,
*somebody* will appear :-) prefer bzr, and might very well prefer hg,
and that's more important than mere numbers.  I can't refute that
argument, but I sure can, and do, disagree with the conclusion.

I have a bunch of further comments on the specifics of Jordi's post,
but they're off-topic for now, so I'm replying to him directly.

Interested parties, let one of us know.
