It doesn't really matter which tool is the fastest at a specific action, but if 
the tool's performance is acceptable.
While I guess that git will be faster overall compared to hg, I don't expect it 
would be a performance issue to use either tool for our repository.
And while I would usually prefer hg over git, I think the missing hard link 
feature of BFS simply disqualifies hg for now. And why not use git then, if it 
comes down to preference, anyway?
