The only reason I have *two* public repositories is, I'm after
contributors. I really didn't want to do github, but I gave in so that
others using git could contribute. Having to sync two different repos
isn't much fun, and can make some of the pull requests a little messy.

I do use Mercurial for other reasons, though. Using the patch extension
makes it easy to write a prototype, and leave it unapplied in the patch
queue until I'm ready to refine and use it.
