Pro-tip: if you're developing on Windows, you're mad if you don't
prime your dev env with Tools\buildbot\externals.bat. It takes
care of *everything*. I wish every proprietary UNIX system we
support had something similar.

I think it's more a case of there being no tangible benefit (and
numerous drawbacks) to switching it to hg. I personally have no
need for a local hg repo with 30 different Tcl/Tk histories in
Subversion's good for this sort of use case. The externals repo
gets committed to maybe, what, 3-4 times a year?

Who are these mystical people worried about history? ;-)
