For the FSF-hosted repository of packages, I'd want all the packages
to be version controlled, so the "submit-package" would be nothing else
than "bzr commit" (but yes, some extra code would need to be written to
automatically build a tarball out of the newly committed code, ...).

Indeed, we'd of course want that, if/once we provide such
a package system.  But that should be easy.
