I can spend some time on Mercurial integration for the main IDEs in
use by core devs, I'm sure the PIDA folks have most of this sorted
already. It would be important to have these (and any other non-PEP
worthy tasks/helpers) listed with some detail, e.g., in a wiki page.

If anyone has requests for tools that would make the transition
smoother (e.g. the script for /external, a wrapper for svnmerge
semantics on top of hg transplant, etc.) but has no time to work on
them, please add them to
http://wiki.python.org/moin/CoreDevHelperTools .
