Is it really true that CVS will be easier for some people?
I see two constituencies:
- Users (that is, admins)
For users, it's just bzr co <url> <directory>, copied and pasted from
the installation web page. I can't see much advantage there. OK, if you
are in Windows, you have to install bzr - but you have to install CVS too.
For hackers, we don't allow them to commit to CVS anyway! So starting
with a CVS checkout just means you have to port your patches over later.

Bugzilla Update is low enough traffic that I think we should just submit
it to both these aggregators now, without worrying.
