   Sticking to a moribund version-control system will compound and
   exacerbate the project's difficulty in attracting new talent.

It impedes people stuck on old (low spec) computers, too.  For example,
in my adventures w/ git-bzr, i have managed to do the initial clone, but
512M RAM is not enough to achieve the tantalizingly compact footprint
that "git gc --aggressive" purports.  I'm a stubborn fool and will find
a way eventually (suggestions from git-bzr / git experts welcome!), but
it's an unqualified slog that i imagine is just not worth the trouble
for others in similar straits.
