I just find git too repulsive on the UI front to bother using, in fact I
actively try and avoid using it.  bzr's my preference and, since they
concentrated on performance a few releases back, has easily coped with
anything I use it for.

On an aside, if Debian are to persist in sticking with their old groff
fork, is there any chance Ubuntu may break ranks and switch back to
Werner's latest and greatest?
