DVCS doesn't mean that everybody works on his part and never pushes  
anymore. Normally, you instantly push after committing. You only do  
that later if you're offline.

Also, even small projects benefit from hg. We switched from svn to hg  
at Audacious a long while ago, and it's far less stress to maintain  
branches etc. :)
