I assume you are aware of 
http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/RepositoryConversion#head-fce51b73eabd731956b686a6a39e3e5bed45820d 
and thus http://hg.omnifarious.org/~hopper/p4_to_hg

A generic any-to-any approach like tailor is a good idea, but in many 
cases it has turned out to be "better" to do the conversion directly.

And it seems like a tool converting from (for example) git to mercurial 
has more in common with other tools targeting mercurial as target than 
other tools supporting git as source. So git-p4 might not be the best 
starting point.

Mercurials built-in "convert" extension supports several formats but 
lacks perforce. Adding perforce support sounds like a good way to do it.
