The fact that we are changing so much, webpage, tracker, so on, makes it
easier to do this change.  People will already have to learn not to use
SF, one more step, esp. if we can walk them through it, as Ethan's
monotone directions do, will be no big deal.

I have advocated distributed VCS systems a number of times, both in
general and for us in particular.  I still believe that monotone or one
of it's distributed competetors would be the best home for us.
