I'm not sure it's worth of effort, really. And I mean it as active 
committer voting for and currently using mercurial (I really see most of 
_active_ contributors voting for git).

I'd question even changing revision control system at all. I don't think 
that for porject with less than 10 active committers and with less than 
10 commits per day (average) any version control system is in the way. 
But as seeing this enthusiasm to get a new toy ... I think that it's my 
personal problem only ... 

At best we should provide unofficial access to the repos in other formats, 
like it is today - people using git have their mirror from cvs and people 
using mercurial using their mirror. And people really using these systems 
take care of these mirrors. Any maintenance overhead is just pointless 
for such small project. I really prefer people coding ...

Just my 2 cents.
