One personal aspect I would like to throw into the discussion:

Although it is possible to use hg/bzr/svn in parallel within a project
and a buildout, I am completely against having a mixture of SVN+HG
or SVN+BZR within a Plone project (where Zope stuff is coming from
BZR or HG) and the Plone stuff from SVN..if we want/need to switch
away from SVN then all other related projects should switch as well.
