I'm very against dropping sequential revision numbers; I've already 
filled the archive with a number of arguments and opinions on that, 
though :-)
In any case, before we do that, I would say we should just stick with 
SVN, and let everyone who wants to use a DVCS use it over the existing 
bridges (I don't mean our read-only clone, but git-svn for example).
We also mustn't lose our existing revision numbers when switching the 
VCS, as that would let us lose a lot of the usefulness of our existing 
bug database. I think those are really the minimal requirements for a

That would indeed be great to know beforehand. I can't think of a good 
reason why that should slow anything down, though -- it needs to have 
the hash keys indexed, too, anyway.
