Its incredibly fast, very easy to learn & use, and allows work offline
from network with full SCM  capabilities still operational. Did I mention
it was fast yet ?  Git, Monotone, Darcs also share these similar capabilities
so there's not much to choose between these 3 and Mercurial. I guess I was
drawn to Mercurial above all because it was fast & simple to install - only
has Python >= 2.3 as its install pre-requisite.

We should have all the tools / code we've written thus far published by 
the end of the week assuming there are no problems encountered
