That was years before we switched from it to Git, and the reason for
slowness had nothing to do with it being written in Python.  The
reason was the inefficient protocol, one of many offered by Bazaar,
set up on Savannah.  Once the efficient protocol was installed and
configured, the slowness problems disappeared.

Look, if you want your ideas and arguments be taken seriously, you may
wish to study better the use cases you bring up, and back up your
arguments with facts and measurements, instead of hand-waving and
FUD.  Do that, and you will see a very different response from this
community: a real inefficiency, evident to everyone, is something
quite a few people here will be fast to dig into, analyze, and propose
ways for improvements.
