Thank you.

As I said I've already using emacs+auctex and git but for my
colleague it would be not optimal (though I didn't I ask him).
So I decided to try TortoiseHg and texworks because I also use hg and
know the texworks but worry about workflow. One of the way I see is to
use two tools: texworks and _separately_ TortoiseHg Workbench, one to
work with LaTeX code and second one to commit, revising diffs between
commits... So user have to work with texworks (simple side) _and_ teach
himself to work with HG (difficult side, because he doesn't have any
experience with VCS).

AFAIK, kdiff3 is included into TortoiseHg for Windows.
