With these you have a discussion which can be merged easily when it gets branched. I use it for anything I do, and I could use it together with an only-windows-and-GUI user with ease, installing TortoiseHG for both and Lyx for him (LaTeX made easy – you don’t have to see the sources).

Just right click in a folder, call synchronize and pull and your work gets merged.

Besides: A simple Mercurial repository with URLs as document identifiers would allow forking the web :)
