Well, I've lightly used bzr on top of an SVN tree without too many
problems.   Though in that case, I've always used the bzr tree for
fast-paced work and made the SVN commits as separate operations, not
by trying to generate a commit from a bzr changeset.

Recently (both SAGE and Brett Cannon's tests) have me leaning more
towards hg than bzr, but it's probably a bit of a toss-up between
those two.

The main point is just to give each of us an easy way to keep local
version control we can share for pulling changes, while SVN remains
the 'official' tree for commits meant for 'final' distribution.

Just an idea...

Cheers
