What I'm attempting to do may be a bad idea: use hg directly in
tracking a project that uses another SCM (svn).

There was another post today about using hg to track a project that
uses another SCM.  It looks like the way to do this is with tailor

But if you don't care about tracking the history of the project your
are tracking, it seems not unreasonable to put a working copy from the
foreign SCM into hg.

+ seth

PS: if the error looks like it is worth tracking down, let me know
what other info I can provide.  I'm running Python 2.4 on OS X.
