Mercurial still holds that honor for me. I've screwed up so bad I had to
reclone and lost work. Dozens of times. :(.

Git is just as easy to screw up. And were it not for the extensive "hole in
foot first aid" feature git has, I'd be there too... I hate the cli because
it seems overtly hostile to orthogonality, consistency and logic. But learn
the warts and it gets the job done.
