libswscale is a problem, but not an unsolvable one.

Not a problem as such, but you won't be able to edit commit messages
later with git.

I'm not too worried about that.

We need to devise a secure way for people to commit stuff to the
server.  This will of course not become easier by delaying, but it's
something that requires proper consideration.  We don't want any
security holes.

Finally, I'd prefer that a good number of developers were at least
somewhat familiar with git before we switch.  I know some of us
already use it, but I don't know how large a number.
