What is the managment overhead of decentrilized version control?

Not much!
We're using it in a 4man-team, and people are merging their own code into
the main branch.
Like you said that on subversion everybody just needs permissions to be able
to do it,
the same thing counts for bzr. We have a central server and people
merge their stuff in as required/agreed you need the same sort of
discipline to not merge in unstable updates just before a production
(Each user has an account on the central server and we have a cronjob
 which ensures that we all have permissions to everything)
