Any of the DVCS is better than using SVN or CVS, even for a project
with 0-1 contributors. I personally always use a DVCS for upstream
projects, for those that refuse to use one I always use a DVCS
interface to SVN/CVS/etc. If a project uses CVS or SVN I'm a lot less
likely to check out the source code and or contribute to it. The main
useful feature of DVCS in this case is that they're distributed so
hitting the network isn't necessary (see Linus' talk/rant about this),
resulting in a vast speed increase. After that, easy branching is
probably the most useful feature for a project of this size.
