Or even better, a local hg repository providing a git interface. That
way you could locally push changes upstream from the local hg repo
(since I dont know if git can push to hg) as if it were a git repo, you
would need upstream shell access to the remote hg repo to pull from your
local git repo (since hg can pull and push to git).  You could then
stick to using git locally as mandated by your company, and still
benefit from proper DRCS flow rather than a one-way downstream only flow.
