My project goal isn't actually a general-purpose Mercurial GUI app,
but rather a way to integrate distributed version control into a
specific application I'm writing. I don't want the user to have to
think of Finder actions, or running a separate VCS application, but
rather that they can track (diff) changes while editing their
document, and be able to send off changesets (bundles?) to other
people working on that document.
However, any work I do at creating the Cocoa API would of course be
made public, so another developer could use it in a more general-
purpose way, like a contextual-menu plugin or a standalone app.

Yes, good idea. I'll do so.
