I think the killer issue here is Launchpad. We get pretty much
everything for free, and it's something that we can expect to stay
around in the long haul (and will continue to improve). The slight
performance disadvantage of bzr is a minor concern, esp. for the
project with the size of IPython.

Both hg and bzr as-such (if we forget the hosting options etc) are
"good enough" right now, and both are being improved. As it stands, I
think we should stick with LP + bzr for now - we can re-evaluate the
situation a year or so down the line, if need be.
