bzr is simply unusable for a repository the size of gcc (though they
sometimes claim otherwise).
It couldn't even convert the gcc repository from scratch last time i
tried it, and what it left me with (30k revisions) took *forever* to
perform any operation on (IE literally hours to run log commands).
They could have made massive strides since then (this was a little
over a year ago), but I wouldn't trust anything with that large of a
scaling issue to have solved it in such a short time.
