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.
