1 - take less to deploy / don't require neon and happy friends
2 - has already a nice set of tools / yes are new and already have some
3 - allows the distributed model / not a big selling point given the 
audience ^^;

You may import from cvs or svn using tailor or other tools

GIT: http://git.or.cz/
Used by linux, wine, pugs, xmms2, many other

Mercurial: http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi
Used by wmii, Xen, flock as main scm, sync repos available for: linux, 
dragonflybsd, freebsd

That's all
