Each app picking its VCS seems better than the proposed system with both
bzr and git. Because with the proposal you can pick any vcs you like as
a user, but if you didn't pick the one the maintainer used then he and
the other developers can't pull from you and you're left out on your own
development island. So, all modules would anyway need to marks out what
the prefered vcs for it is and all developers would have to learn both.

Of course, all that could be avoided if we just decided on one...
