You'd have the entire history in the last pull, right?

True. Hosting and pushing to a DVCS sounds better -- and it's not any

I like this.
OT -- Mercurial has on a few occasions accepted a push that resulted in
the target repository losing history or merging in ways that I would
consider fundamentally wrong. I can't prove this, but we've seen it on
a few occasions enough to believe it wasn't user error. I figured I
should share that.
I really haven't had this need with git -- with hg, I did have to
recreate the repo on the server a few times. That might be a problem
for administration and needs a nice way to be automatically cleaned out
and repushed without pinging an admin, I think.
git has a bit too many commands and is not user friendly in a lot of
cases, but from a while using both, I prefer git.
