I've been talking with Elijah to determine what is needed in a DSCM.
Basically, Bzr should be enhanced/improved to have branches in one
checkout directory. For some reason this is important (for real
developers.. not me:). E.g. DSCM will likely mean lots of small
(private) branches; loads more than with a central system.

There are other things as well, but Git has similar drawbacks, so it
isn't Bzr specific.

Note that I look for a DSCM system, not Git. It might be Git, but I
haven't decided (DSCM development is pretty fast, so perfect system
changes pretty often).

This doesn't really matter when GNOME uses Bzr/Git/hg. Then '$RCS-svn'
link is not important anymore.
