Thanks for the help. A follow-up question:
I do have Visual Studio 10 installed, however it's in a wacky location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0
When I try to build, I get this error:
C:\src\mercurial>\apps\ArcGIS10.0\python.exe setup.py build
warning: hgbuildmo: could not find msgfmt executable, no translations will be bu
copying mercurial\__version__.py -> build\lib.win32-2.6\mercurial
building 'mercurial.base85' extension
error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat
Even if the appropriate directory is on my PATH.
I see a lot of articles about using MINGW32, but none about using Visual Studio..anything simple to try? Is it a path thing somehow? (vcvars32.bat had to be modified because of a similar issue)

The 'pure' version is not really supported, and is only of interest to
Python fanatics who want to do silly things like trying to run Mercurial
inside a JVM. It's definitely not intended for enterprise deployment.
It's also known to interact badly with normal Mercurial on Windows.
Normal Mercurial is able to create and detect Windows hardlinks, pure
Mercurial can't. Thus pure Mercurial can corrupt data in normal
Mercurial's hardlinked files. And there may be other issues.
Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
