I just did some work directly on the goff sources for the frst time in
years.  No code changes, just some manual-page fixes to avoid
confusing doclifter.

It was pretty unpleasant.  Can we please move the project to a VCS
that wasn't chipped from flint sometime in the Neolithic?

My preference would be git or hg.  Some DVCS, anyway.  I know the FSF
likes bzr but bzr's branching model make my head asplode.

I wrote a useful repo conversion tool a while back, and am willing
to do the grunt-work.  I'd need admin privs on the Savannah project,
