I stumbled on the "Googling for setuptools plus Mercurial leads to an  
outdated plugin" problem the other day. I e-mailed the author and  
asked him to update the page with a link to setuptools_hg, but haven't  
gotten response yet. Alternatively, people could give a nod to  
setuptools_hg with a link in their blog, etc. and eventually this  
should skew the Google ranking :P
