In general I'd agree but I think it's too late now to switch back. I for one
already started to change Vcs-* fields, fix checkouts etc. where needed.
Other people did so aswell. My guess is that we're in the middle of this nice
epic chaos and switching back now would make it even worse.
On the other hand there are all these packages in stable with broken Vcs
fields now. Still not nice but assuming that most contributions will be
based on what's in unstable that might be bearable.
And I don't know much, but I do know this:
