Yes, I use the most recent SVN. This is important because it contains
a recent patch that supports the "32 bit clean" change sets.

I don't know anything about Mercurial, but IMHO the only real
missing piece is that it would be helpful to get a copy of the
VMMaker Montecello files copied over to a SqueakSource repository.
That's not a tools problem, it's just a matter of convincing Tim
to do it.

It would be an interesting experiment, but speaking just for myself
I'm more interested in making best use of existing resources (people
plus tools) and I really do not have enough free time to keep track
of more development repositories. Shucks, I can't even keep up with
all the different Squeak images, never mind tracking any more VM
projects ;)
