No, that's a separate issue. Thomas is referring to the (unnecessary)
war against non-free software having preference over the improvement
of free software.
 The choice of bzr was perfectly reasonable. Emacs and bzr are part of
the GNU community. The choice has increased the "market share" of bzr
and has already led to improvements.
 Are there still problems? I don't know. I haven't used it yet. If you
find any you should file a bug report.
