I'm only tracking 'HEAD' most of the time, but there are some efforts
underway to convert the history of src/.  One notable example is the

Both true.  But we are off in a tangent.  If you have interesting bits
about Hg or other dSCMs, please contact me off-list or help us keep the
wiki pages about Version Control up to date.
