Please elaborate (or refer to some details somewhere).

I am curious to know your reasons - even if you do not want to discuss 
them: I want to learn :-)

There is more to CDBS than simplifying debhelper.

Let's look into that later (if you are interested at all): I am 
interesting in teaming up with you on this even without using CDBS.

jonas@auryn:BZR$ bzr branch 
http://bzr.debian.org/users/lolando/argyll/debian/sid/ argyll
bzr: ERROR: Transport error: Server refuses to fullfil the request 
jonas@auryn:BZR$ bzr branch 
bzr: ERROR: Transport error: Server refuses to fullfil the request 

Do I need something installed in addition to the "bzr" package?

A year ago I would have declined. Now that I have wrapped my mind around 
git I have a feeling I can grasp other distributed VCS'es too.

In other words: YES! Let's go for it!
