Last time I tried to convert gentoo-x86 to mercurial it ran for 30
days on a high powered ppc64 system.  If you want to see how well
mercurial compares I highly suggest getting a treesnap of gentoo-x86
and doing the conversion.  I tried in 2006 and I hope the conversion
tools have improved.
That being said I'm pretty sure most of us are set on git here and it
would take some convincing to try something else.
