BTW think at the fate of bazaar. Here Python was at stake and for a time
it growed quickly. Assume the easiness of Python as a factor of success.
But finally a C-based tool won the race, while bazaar went into bigger
and bigger issues. Why? :-)
Bazaar is fast enough.  Its dropping out of favor was due to the fact
that that it stopped being actively maintained.

AFAIK before Emacs switched to it and after considerable efforts been put into it. Nonetheless the complains being slow multiplied. You must have seen the echo here on this list.

Assume from a certain point it grow that complex, it ended up unmaintainable. Too many commits and extensions, not enough tests, not enough discuss and reflection.
