on reposurgeon's bzr support; the only other problem appears to be bzr
It might simplify things on conversion day if you don't.

The goal of the final polished conversion is to make it look as though
git had been in use all along - that way people won't see distracting
changes in behavior when they check out old revisions.
This means I'm going to have to write some reposurgeon procedure or facility to
map .bzrignores to .gitignores throughout the history. Having a .gitignore
already in the tree at final conversion time might complicate that.
