yes, I tried to have two checkouts in parallel but failed.  I don't remember 
the details, only that it looks easy (how hard can it be?), but then I 
encountered a herd of yaks to shave.  After two days of fighting, I gave up 
and decided to use the bitbucket SVN interface, but it turns out that it's not 
very stable :-(.

Anyone feel free to try again to use hg, but I'd prefer not to go there by 
myself :-)
