FreeBSD was helped by the fact that we also have a p4 depot setup to do side
branches in (I do all my non-trivial feature branches in p4).  I still use
CVS for small things myself.  If you want to offer a centralized SCM host I
would offer svn though (even if it is a bit of a pig performance-wise) as
changesets are too useful to pass up compared to CVS for new projects IMO.

I can't offer any useful opinion on git vs hg.
