Currently VC's support for DVCS is too limited for such uses, in my
opinion.  If you're working on a leightweight checkout or a bound branch
(aka heavyweight checkout), then you can commit from VC and it will be
like a CVS commit, but further than that, VC lacks support for "pull"
and things like that, although again for the particular case of the
above checkouts, it may be able to fetch updates from the
central repository (via "bzr update").  ;-)

VC needs some love in this area.
