Historically, keymaps, GUI features, and extents vs. overlays were the
main issues.

More recently though we've lagged behind in a lot of areas.  I doubt
that vc-hg.el will be using much GNU-specific code that is not in the
VC package, though.

Note that ESR is currently completely refactoring GNU's VC package
(and I mean APIs are being added and are disappearing); people might
want to look at relevant threads on emacs-devel before putting in too
much time on this.
