With the recent work on branch formats by Rob Collins, future bzr
versions should have absolutely no trouble upgrading old branches. So if
we went ahead and versioned /etc with bzr 0.8 in Dapper, chances are,
the problems we're worried about would never occur. But we want to be
conservative and make sure by giving it an extra 6 months.

See above. It'll "likely" be ready even for Dapper, so Dapper+1 is a
rather solid bet.

bzr is a project of Canonical, and is used for both Ubuntu and Launchpad
