Since converting CVS to Git seems fundamentally more difficult than Bzr
to Git, and seeing the amount of effort that was put into getting a good
Git mirror, I'm fairly confident someone will come up with a good Git
mirror for the Bzr repository.

Actually, since the Bzr repository will actually be a conversion of the
Git repository, that should not be a problem (at least in theory).
Especially since AFAIK Bzr keeps a superset of the info kept in Git, so
the roundtrip Git→Bzr→Git should be naturally lossless.
