I tried

sh$  bzr branch bzr://

using Ubuntu 9.04 Linux with bzr version 1.13.1 .

The attempt resulted in an error

KeyError: 'Bazaar repository format 2a (needs bzr 1.16 or later)\n'

Apparently, bzr repository format is rapidly evolving and would
require me to install new version manually (I do not want to upgrade
my Linux distro for other reasons). Git or Mercurial, on the other
hand, go to extra length to keep their internal format stable and
backward compatible.

No wonder that bzr gets little traction outside of FSF or Canonical.
I understand that decision to move to bzr is final, but might be a
kind soul would provide a bzr->git bridge.
