Has been? Actually, I didn't notice this discussion yet and while I  
touched a lot of FOSS projects recently, not a single one uses  
Bazaar. Even when working with/for Ubuntu, the use of a revision

different direction. A nightmare.

As the others mentioned, having a single (git-)interface for  
different repos whould be a big leap in the right direction.
