No, git is capable of using dumb storage (HTTP/DAV only, but everybody
has that nowadays).  It requires some preparation on the server side,
setup for writing is non-trivial, and Bazaar may be more efficient
than git if you are using dumb protocols, though.  (Hard though that
last may be to believe!)

This is not considered a feature by git users.  Why it is considered a
feature by Bazaar users and developers, I don't know. :-)
