That's pretty good though having just learned much more about
Mercurial and already being fairly competent with Git I don't know if
Mercurial is all that much easier to learn than Git. Also the default
Mercurial branches are just not as nice as Git's (though the hg
bookmark plug-in seems to mitigate that.)

Also the DVCS repo checkouts tend to be actually smaller than an SVN
checkout, even with all the commit history!

As I have said I would be OK with Mercurial but I think Git is faster
and more powerful and currently more stable on Haiku.
