I18n more or less directly depends on having the module in git (as
damned-lies gets the status from git and will be able to commit directly
to git in the not-to-far-away future.

I of course see your point that it courses some inconvenience and I
wouldn't want to force you to do this migration tommorow but in the end,
people will try to report GNOME bugs in bugzilla.
I kind of looked on the amount of work that would need to be done and saw
12 bugs and 4 blueprints which is really an amount that can easily be
handled manually (copy&paste into bugzilla). I would rather do such a
migration sooner that later because once your bug database fills up,
things will get more difficult.
If it's just to get this 16 items migrated I will happily volunteer...

I think you should rather see that the other way round - track your
git.gnome.org stuff using bzr if you are more familiar with it but keep
the "real" code in git.
