We'll use git-remote-bzr. And exactly, this tool will be useful for
everyone to move the MPs.

Here is a simple test I made:


This is as simple as giving a bzr url to git clone (or git remote add).
Then, git will work as if it was a git repository. And 2 git clone on
the same bzr branch will give the same SHAs (according to my tests).
