Matt's posts about the bandwidth comparisons prompted the git team to develop the pack object. from what I have seen about it's internals I wouldn't be surprised if the git pack object ends up being smaller then Mercurial in many cases (and is very close in the other cases)
the pack object also goes a long way to address the seek problem that's described.
this should be looked at more closely if either of these factors are significant to you.
