I've sure seen complaints about people not being able to use BK and

and exists, but the demand is definitely influenced by people not
wanting, or not able to use BK.
I think another factor was that LM considers CVS `safe', as it's crappy
enough to not really be much of a threat to BK saleswise.  For this
reason, it seems unlikely he'd make an arch gateway, even if the benefit
to users was very high.

So far i don`t see enough articulation of that issue.

This makes me think that "we don`t care about saving the extended metadata
in a free software way" is a dominating idea on lkml.
I've found myself to be the only one expressing that need, both on the list and privately to Larry. While it has potential value to arch, I think it's more fundamentally important in general to have that granularity of information freely available. I believe that anyone that is willing to abide by the BK license is able to export the complete changeset information, so the hurdle isn't too large to get would be wonderful if would host it.
