I upgraded the information with more advanced concepts (repository vs 
branch vs checkout, committing, and merging).

I tried to be as concise and as simple as possible, so that people who 
may wonder what we are talking about when we speak about hg/bzr/git can 
see what it is about.

I also tried to show that at least as far as bzr is concerned, most 
commands (the one most people will use) are really similar to svn, for 
people who wonder about the learning curve.
