MySQL is Bazaar'ed

The big news in MySQL world is that MySQL has moved off BK and onto BZR.

Why is this news? I predicted the switch off of BK within minutes of the Sun announcement, in this post.

I didn't use any "insider knowledge" in that observation either, just the knowledge that Sun uses and contributes to HG, which makes using BK a non-starter, and that Sun would likely be unwilling to stop all HG work, and pay for a 30,000 seat BK site license, just to maintain access to one product.
