Sticking with a dvcs implemented in Python makes the best sense,
especially when you consider the plugin architecture. When we
selected a new tracker, we didn't make implementation in Python a
requirement, but instead a high hurdle. Meaning, if a tracker wasn't
written in Python it had to be way better than those written in Python.
As for dvcs, I think git would have to show overwhelming advantage
over bzr or hg to be considered.
