After using Mercurial in one project, I'm skeptical that this really 
makes things simpler. I find it very hard to find out what changes a 
specific clone has that I still need to integrate. Also, when merging 
with conflicts, I find it very difficult to determine whether I merged 
all the conflicts correctly (since the diff will show all changes, not 
just the conflicts).

So I rather expect things to become more difficult when switching to hg.
