To each their own strength. If somebody asked how to setup a central server
with complicated permission setup for different users, or how to deal with
multiple versions of large binary with Mercurial, my answer would be to look
at Subversion.

In this particular case I do think Mercurial is better suited. Having said
that, the OP has now stated that he is already using svn, so that's another
factor to consider.
