Well, there's a difference between the current case, where somebody who
wants to update msys-vim to a version newer than that bundled inside
Chris's -src tarball would need to have mercurial to do so, and

Anybody who wants to develop/modify the software we maintain (mingw-get,
MSYS itself, etc) would need mercurial/git/etc.

In the former case, I don't see much problem "requiring" a tool we don't
provide.  In the latter case...I find that more problematic, especially
if the tool in question requires Visual anything, to be compiled on win32.
