Some have done just that, and some others did have discussions. I'm
just pointing out that stopping to evaluate the alternatives is not
dangerous per se.

I don't think so. Very few people has experience with several dVCS;
most discussion (at least, in this list) has not gone over the level
of "this is the dVCS I'm comfortable with".

I don't think Richard's policies are crazy; I respect him and his
accomplishments. But I'm don't think either that what I'm suggesting
is a radical change in policy, unless "stop and look at the
alternatives" is considered radical.
