Except that this blog fails to mention bookmarks and the rev query
language, like I did earlier in this thread.  The combination of those
two changes the game quite a bit I suspect.

I still like git's open data structures compared to Mercurial's
revlogs (for example, it's not obvious what happens if you rollback a
bookmarked commit), but once you have proper refs and a query
language, it should be possible to do most of the things git does as
git does them.
