Dear Scott,

I undertand that learning Git after BZR is hard, because learning BZR after Git
is equally painful.  I think that the key difficulty is whether a system is
learned first or second, not the system itself.

This is where git-buildpackage is nice, as it re-implements the same user experience
as with svn-buildpackage, and therefore provides some kind of upgrade path.
