I know. But Richard was not saying that we should use Bazaar with
Emacs because Emacs is one of GNU flagship projects, but that all GNU
projects *should use* Bazaar.

IIUC, you're saying "no" to "would we like GNU packages to do that?"
(ie, using Bazaar). I'm agnostic; I'm just not comfortable with the
idea of not taking into account reliability, user interface,
scalability, performance, etc., and blindly assuming that all current
dVCS are more-or-less equivalent. git is quite fast; mercurial has a
nice interface, etc. Using one or another does definitely not offer
the same experience, even if the functionality is very similar.
