Ah, with that pages it gets much clearer! Only how should anyone know that 
https://github.com/fingolfin/git/commits/remote-hg is
related in any form or shape with 
I'm afraid it still won't help me much though, as I guess it too requites 
Python 2.5 or later, as it uses the Mercuroal Python API
(and that actually may be the reason why it never made it into git? I believe 
to have read somewhere that git tries to restrict
itself to Python 2.4)

No, please don't. Rather make that clear on 
https://github.com/fingolfin/git/commits/remote-hg ...
