Also, remember that launchpad makes it pretty trivial to set up a bzr
branch off an external SVN or other repo.  So it should  be very easy
to create launchpad projects that track existing google code ones you
are interested in.

Not arguing with your original point, just providing more info on a
viable workaround in the meantime, especially since it's quite likely
that projects already on google code will not switch hosts due to this
issue.

Best,
