So far, the SCMs we support have been driven mostly by the SCMs that
Trac supports, with the exception to bzr which I had nothing to do with
setting up.

So the questions are, does Trac support monotone, does monotone lend
itself to a hosted environment (easy ssh commit access, http anon
access, useful web browser, easy to create empty repos for developers
to fill, etc...), is it in EPEL, does it have a security track record,
and uh... is there anybody on the infrastructure team that feels like
they could become our site expert on it?
