You may want to bring your questions to the bzr mailing list.  I know there are
other people doing exactly what you are doing.  bzr is highly configurable.  The
bzr devs are also very helpful.  It is likely that bzr can do what you want, but
that some amount of configuration is necessary to get good performance given
what you are versioning.
