If its GNU and would be useful to Debian if packaged, you won't get much
resistance hosting a project there. 

Another thing to consider is joining the FSF :

as an associate (or lower) member. This of course doesn't guarantee your
project gets accepted, but its a nice way to say "I'm serious." with a
karma bonus :). If you use the GNU license often and have a few bucks,
its not a bad place to leave some money.

Still, I'll be happier to see something sprout up open to anyone
centered around Mercurial.
