I find it ironic that you were even willing to write tools to
facilitate your hg based gcc workflow.  That really shows what your
thinking is on this matter, in that you're willing to put effort
towards making hg work better for you but you're not willing to expend
that level of effort to see if git can do so as well.

This is what really eats me from the inside about your dissatisfaction
with git.  Your analysis seems to be a self-fullfilling prophecy, and
that's totally unfair to both hg and git.
