Hmmm...Romain, how is this maintained, is it with hook scripts from
the CVS repo?  Also, is ChangeLog information in the git history or as
separate files?

I believe lossless repo conversions to Mercurial and bzr from git are
possible.  And I seriously doubt the Savannah admins will refuse toi
support either if we request it.

So, this is very good news -- it will make moving easier.  But it
does not actually constrain what we choose.
