It's 1 extra line in git-remote-hg, and 4 lines in git-remote-bzr. I'll
even send in patches for the current version you have in your tree if
you'd like. It would make testing removal of an import easier, and the
adding of imports would be consistent. They can still be grouped, but
having them on a single line kind of limits the ease of manipulation for
testing and possible packager patching if needed.

I would disagree, but this is one of the less important things.

It's not so much that it's wrong or less readable, but there is
inconsistency on this one and I'd err pep8. Again, will send a patch to
your tree for you to review, though it looks like you mostly fixed this
in [1].

Fair enough. At the same time, it'd only change 14 lines in the current
git.git tree and would probably increase the readability of some of the
sections. I noticed that some of the changes in the referenced patch
actually fixed this on a few lines as well.
