It's also overkill and a bad idea due to its complexity, as Martin
said. Dig through the threads linked from http://vcs-pkg.org to find
all the other arguments against it, especially by Pierre, who
probably knows more Git than you and I together.

If I were asked about which source package format will become
standard in Debian for squeeze or squeeze+1, I'd have to say v3
quilt, for *sure*. The git/bzr were nice ideas but are never going
to make it, IMHO.
