That's unfair to Glenn, and is evidently based on just 2 data points
out of many more.

So let me add 2 more from my failing memory:

  . Glenn also lobbied hard to remove the old MS-Windows configury
    (which I objected, and therefore it didn't happen yet)

  . Glenn suggested that the trunk relies on GNU Make, which did
    happen, and made many useful changes which that enabled

I encourage you to browse the logs, because I'm sure you will find an
overwhelming evidence that your conclusion is based on incorrect
interpretation of a single incident.  If you consider the inordinate
amount of work Glenn personally invested in making bzr usage
convenient in Emacs, you might come up with an alternative explanation
to his alleged "footdragging".
