The only way to avoid duplicated effort is to work together, and I've
yet to see where the remote-hg branch is supposed to be (without any
msysgit stuff), so that other people can give it a try, and propose

Yeah, I'm aware mercurial doesn't have those, that's why I didn't
implement that, other tools do something similar as you mention in the
wiki, but the code is rather convoluted.

Note that this doesn't prevent things to be bidirectional, what it
prevents is using this tool to export git repositories to mercurial,
not the other way around. If you do an octopus merge on a repository
that you know is going to end in mercurial, that's just asking for
trouble, and complaints from the other users of that repo.

Anyway, I don't think that feature is that important, what is more
important is to make sure renames and branches are stored properly. I
have tests that check that the output is the the same as hg-git, but
I'm still not there.
