If bzr is mearly to be 'just' another rcs, then that is one thing. 
However, I'm wondering if the rcs will become more integrated into the
system over time, perhaps something like redhat has with the 'redhat
network' and the various management tools that go with it, like where
one can roll back to earlier configs across servers.

That and I don't see the point to yet-another-rcs, unless there are
capablilities (planned or otherwise) within bzr that will outshine
other rcs systems.

don't get me wrong, I'm not driving a campaign here.  Mainly just
wondering why and wherezit all going sort of thing.
