You could clone one of the existing DCVS mirrors and open a branch on a public hosting service (bitbucket.org, launchpad, etc.). The annoying thing, though, is that it requires your co-workers to learn the DVCS in question.
The problem is pushing back to upstream; I don't know much about mercurial, but I would advise the op to take a look at git-svn or similar tools with other DVCS (each tool has its own way). It really is the best IMHO to track a project upstream, with the option of pushing back - again, it is so simple (took me ~ 1 hour to get around without any previous encounter with git and I am no genius) and useful that it is my method of choice to commit to projects I am developing for and which use svn.
