I think it deserves consideration.  One idea would be to have a
Bazaar-NG repository that tracks the CVS SF repository.  I haven't
tried it yet but there is a tool called Tailor[1] that automates the
task.  That would give people a chance to experiment with Bazaar-NG
(and still work with SF is down) without committing to it.

I think Python works fairly well with the centralized model.
However, I expect it's hard to know what we are missing.
