Just for the record. I'm just lurking on this mailing list and learning to use 
Emacs. But I don't think I'll consider contributing to emacs for two reasons:

- I don't want to invest in learning Bzr. I haven't liked it before and this 
blogpost[1] seems to confirm that Bzr has no bright future.

- It unsettles me that the emacs team seems to continue to use an inferior 
tool for reasons of politics instead of using the best available tool.

Both reasons are of course highly subjective and controversial. I just wanted 
to give the perspective of somebody who is reserved because of bzr.
