Just for the sake of fairness - Mark's email states that they convert
cvs repositories to baz (Bazaar 1.x), not to bzr (Bazaar-NG, soon-to-be
Bazaar 2.x).  The tools to convert to bzr are not yet mature, as bzr
itself just recently started to solidify.  (The pace of development is
one of my favorite "features" about bzr; it's a testament to python and
to bzr itself.)

You can, however, convert from CVS to baz (arch), and from there to bzr.

      So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
       then they seem improbable, and then, when we
       summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
