The open solaris project documented their choice, too:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/tools/scm/history/

Contrary to mozilla, solaris is using hg as the main VCS. Again, a
thing to keep in mind with the mozilla thing is that bzr improved a
lot speed-wise, and that mozilla is several order of magnitudes bigger
than scipy will ever be.

To test the svn import by hg, svnsync seems to be necessary: I don't
go anywhere by using hg convert directly on scipy repository, whereas
bzr-svn does.
