Also, I would not merge the Jython SVN into the /projects repository,
but instead set up a separate repository (http://svn.python.org/jython,
and svn+ssh://jython@svn.python.org/).

As discussed at PyCon, we should collect SSH keys for Jython committers
in advance of the svn switchover; we would have to do that either way
(also for hg), so now might be the right time to start doing it.

As for the repository organization: I have now opinion (or, rather,
no experience with hg).
