Is there an easy way to get git to clone/pull from a Mercurial

Yes. Google "git remote helpers" and you'll most likely find it.

Well, I found a few. No idea how to get them to work though (so far
for the 'easy' part of my question) It seems requires Python 2.5
(and I only have 2.4), also I have no idea how to get it installed is 3 years old, apparently never
made it into git, guess for a reason?  Then I found,
looks very confusing to me...

Install a newer python and hg
Are you really sure, that python 2.5 doesn't exist for your machine?

Yes, I am sure. Python 2.4 had been ported more than 5 years ago by a former
workmate, otherwise we wouldn't even have that.

Most non embedded devices should  offer python 2.5 or newer
(for some distros you just have to add 'alternative' repositories)

For this platform (HP NonStop) basically nothing is available from any
repository on the web but ITUGLIB ( and
that's the machine I'm working on/for ;-)

We're currently trying to port Python-2.7, but it ain't easy...
