[development] bzr battle plan

My major issue with BZR is source repository browsing.

We need a central web based interface to browse the repository, and  
do diffs and the like.
Applications like this exist for both svn and cvs, but not for bzr.

There is a php library for svn that would allow us to directly  
integrate it into Drupal
(which would be great for a project management tool. Think trac in  
php, but with Drupal).

So long as the files are in one location, I'm happy .. but I really  
do think we need to
give cvs the boot. SVN is far simpler to comprehend, and script.
