The deal is that it's not uncommon that our svn is not working, due to
server problems. And trac gets slow/broken sometimes. If we can have
what we have now (plus a DVCS) on a well-maintained server, it's a net
win. And if/when Git becomes the giant of DVCS's at some point, it's
not the end of the world; we'll just import our bzr repo to git. We
are not some clumsy megacorporation that can't make such a switch
because of inertia.
