I don't think that *version* control is the right model to describe what
hg and git do, although it may be appropriate for subversion. hg doesn't
manage *versions*, it manages changes to source code ("changesets").
Mercurial describes itself as a "distributed source control management
tool", so I think the term "source control" is quite appropriate.
