If you could add Mercurial support to MonoDevelop (like Git and SVN), that would be a nice option.

Mercurial support depends on embedding their commandline executable. It's pretty hard to get an implementation of this running without shipping a dependency on it.

There is an implementation done here:

A soft dependency on 'hg' is reasonable. MonoDevelop doesn't have to ship it, it merely has to check if it's there on the add-in's initialization and VersionControlSystem already has an IsInstalled() method.

It'd be great to see this merged into MD.
