Actually, I've found that there's an excellent reason to use DVCS: 
managing local changes to upstream software.  I learned the basics of 
Mercurial last weekend and found it to be a nice improvement over 
svn, at least for that use case.  There is even a built-in tool to 
pull updates from CVS, svn, and others into a Mercurial repository, 
and it handles merging MUCH better than svn.  I plan to migrate all 
my own company's private-branch projects to Mercurial for that reason.
