A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
mercurial is pretty equivalent. Implementation language may influence your preference.
git has more bizarre syntax/workflow. mtn (or hg) appeal more to a person already familiar with cvs or svn. If you've been raised with git, on the other hand...
I also like the clear separation of database and working copy, that's a bit more muddled in git.
Never looked at bazaar.

The separation of "database and working tree" in git is as clear as you want it to be. For convenience, you can keep it in the working tree, or you can have it separate in a bare repo.
Having grown up with RCS and then bitkeeper (could never wrap my head around CVS or SVN, perhaps brain wiring messed up?), and user of git since it was a creeping horror, I'm confortable with git as of today. Nothe that is has changed very much in the last time, a new look is probably warranted.
Yes, I should take a closer look at the alternatives today too... but I won't migrate (too much of what I'm interested in is in git (or easily accessible via git).
