Packaging workflow

After watching the Packaging with version control systems talk by Martin F. Krafft ( thanks debconf video team ).  I really want to update my packaging workflow, Martin's workflow seems too complicated to me.  I'd like to have a simplified version for my packages.  The question is though which VCS do I choose, I have experience of bzr but have never used git or mercurial.  Changing my packaging workflow is not something I want to be doing too often, so I would like to make the "right" choice from the outset.

So to that end I will be trying each major Distributed VCS, and looking at the associated packaging helpers to decide on which to use.  If you have any insight or opinions on this, please leave a comment or mail me.
