I think it is a very very safe assumption.
I personally know of at least 20,000 people who use git in their day
jobs, and that's just at one company.
I never even heard of mercurial before looking into this project. It's
definitely much more of a niche within a niche.
Go to the book store and tell me how many books you can find on each
Add to that pretty much anyone doing Linux kernel development, and
everyone on github. It's also the default for new projects in Apple's
Xcode, IIRC, so it's probably used quite heavily in the iOS and OS X
Unless there is a sizable army of mercurial users that have sequestered
themselves from society (and who don't buy books)....
This contingency was not meant to offend my Amish brothers, who
shouldn't be on the Internet reading this in the first place.
