Locally cached repository is a big one, as Ruslan implied re: svk, which 
essentially adds the distributed bits that git has built-in.

It also makes the process of sharing/fetching patches trivial, which is 
nice in an open source project.

And it's *screaming* fast. Nice when you're working with a huge codebase.

Those are my big three.
