any way to leverage git?

My thought was more that if the git abstraction is sufficiently abstract
and a useful building block then bzr ought to exploit it.  I would expect
the kernel team will in time devise an implementation that has acceptable
resource utilization.  If git can truly cope with the kernel's needs at
the sorts of speeds to which Linus aspires then I would assume that it will
be a while before bzr sees use on a project for which a layering on git
is unacceptable.
