I agree, and think there are other casual contributors and minor
maintainers here who agree.  This has not led to any change in the
Bzr-primary policy, but little reminders of it are useful from time to
time because otherwise the issue would look quiescent when it's not.

I will continue to use Bzr here as long as necessary, but it definitely
slows down the rate at which I can do Emacs work.
