Personally I'd prefer git, for much the same reason as Paul prefers
mercurial (using it for other projects).
And as someone pointed out, github is one good reason, too. Enables
contributors to share their work easily.

But I'd say I wouldn't be dead-set against going with mercurial (or
staying with monotone) as well.
