Bazaar and Visual Studio Integration

The Bazaar distributed source control system has some Google Summer Of Code Projects. One of which is the Visual Studio integration and recently there has been a status update on the mailing list talking about progress - read it here.

I think the distributed source control system that catches on will probably be the one which manages to get together the best external tools and UI. Bazaar seems to have a few projects that are actively developed that could deal with that and make it quite a contender.

Part of the development for this project though is wrapping the API in a Microsoft embeddable way. An interesting approach but I can think of a few other routes.
