Sorry; I forget the actual complexity of the transition.  We did not
actually do the switch before Bzr was ready ("barely", perhaps), and
furthermore the investment resources to get it to where we needed it
were more or less known to be committed to that purpose, when we made
the decision.  I guess Jordi is proposing the same for Savane, though.
