Dvcs mini roundup comment 000

It looks like mercurial's Windows support is even worse if you use the official source distribution. Some of that obviously makes its way through even in the Windows-friendly package from Bryan O'Sullivan.

I noticed this as I am now evaluating the ease/difficulty of contributing to each project (I even get to fix the same thing in both bzr and hg).

However, I will need to fix even basic things like "hg diff" in Windows if I want to contribute other Windows fixes. I didn't have to do anything like this using bzr, because the core distribution already works in Windows.
