I'm afraid in case of other SCM systems we are limited to Git right now,  
and in future only to distributed systems.
It also means that Gitlab will have to be seriously patched[1] to work  
with systems like mercurial or bzr.

Regarding subversion, I believe we can offer support for that through  
git-svn, basically svn repositories won't be touched, but mirrored to keep  
svn users inside gitlab.
I've been using svn2git[2] more or less successfully to mirror some svn  
projects on github.
