Yes. When I said that open solaris was using hg as their main VCS, I
meant today. Mozilla does not use yet mercurial; note that when
solaris (and mozilla ?) made their choice, bzr had problems with big
code size, which is less of a problem now (bzr heavily focused on
performances in the last 6 months, and it showed). I have imported
scikits and scipy in both mercurial and bzr, and for some operations,
bzr is now faster (in my limited experience).

To be frank, I did not realize that mercurial was that popular (which
makes it more of an argument than I initially thought: I assumed -
wrongly it seems - that both had a similar user-base)
