I think this point is not to be underestimated. Currently, the Mozilla
project uses (IMO) too many different VCSes. How it got that way is
history, and we are currently in the middle of a transition, but it
would be good to work towards having fewer. CVS will die slowly, and
perhaps one day the SVN repo will move to Hg too. Adding a fourth VCS to
the mix certainly doesn't help this goal.

Justdave: does the IT team have any views on VCS consolidation, or is
the official line that "we'll support whatever people want to use"?
