Yes, Dirkjan has been working on it.  My initial experience with hg as a
quick way to revision control anything anywhere on a small scale ("hmmm, I
should track changes to /etc/hosts... cd /etc ; hg init ; hg add hosts")
worked quite well, but when I tried to use it for something where I was
actually working collaboratively (my lockfile module) I managed to get my
code/branches/heads/whatever completely f**ked up.  I gave up and just went
back to Subversion.
