What the git vs bzr discussion is about IMO is usability. The following blog post about DTrace on linux talks about the same issue, and I’d like to use Bryan’s words:

The subtle bit here is that many of those decisions were not at the surface of the system (where the discussion on the Linux list seems to be currently mired), but in its guts.”
