Another point worth mentioning is that any manifest system which uses
DVCS manifests or stores it's manifests in DVCSes is *far more secure*
than a Cathedral VCS. Currently, there is a single point of failure
for mangling of indexes -- cvs.gentoo.org. And no one outside of Infra
will be able to notice. If we have a distributed system, any fiddling
on git.gentoo.org will be noticed by *everyone*.
