It's a good point. I thought we'd keep using CVS for 7.7.x while
transitioning to git for "HEAD". On the other hand, I like Tristan's
confidence, so I'd be OK with switching to git before we create
the 7.7 branch. Also, why force ourselves to use two systems, one
of them being phased out, when we can use just one?
