While I don't disagree with the decision, please note that I did try several
times to actively use the Mercurial import of the various Python branches.
Because of the lack of branch support, it never worked well enough to
advertise, promote, or rely on.

It's a minor shame for me personally because I still greatly prefer Bazaar
over Mercurial, but I understand the constraints that lead to this decision.
