What is the official product name for use in text?

  "mercurial" or "Mercurial"?

I start seeing more and more "mercurial"...

The hgbook uses "Mercurial".
ols-mercurial-paper.pdf from wiki page "Presentations" uses "Mercurial".

But the new logo uses "mercurial".

I would like to know this for the wiki.

For example, what is the correct way in text:

   "For a hands-on introduction to using Mercurial, see the tutorial."
   "For a hands-on introduction to using mercurial, see the tutorial."

I don't link the word Mercurial/mercurial on the wiki in text, so
potential MoinMoin camelcase link woes is not an issue here.
