Afaik bzr exists for "all" platforms - it is written in Python.

I am not sure but I don't think it makes much sense.

There is a fledgling TortoizeBzr: http://bazaar-vcs.org/TortoiseBzr

Thing is - distributed SCMs are quite different from Svn/CVS. That is
the whole point.

Also this experiment is mainly directed at us on the "outside" of the
core VM developer group.
You possibly think Svn covers all your bases (but I suspect you would
also prefer Bzr or similar if you tried it) - but from those without a
"commit bit" bzr offers much more interesting options.

So a first step is this synched pristine bzr mirror that "others" can
work from/with. And then eventually who knows - maybe you guys will also
see the benefits of a more modern approach. :)
