As the project leader for the Leo project, I agree completely.  I
would have said exactly the same, except I wouldn't have said so so
well or so completely :-)

I'd like to emphasize that bzr makes it much easier for anyone to
contribute.  With Leo, there was an initial flurry of activity as
people "got code off their chests and onto the trunk".  After that,
there has been steady contributions from the key developers.
