I'll go so far and say as long as it runs on FreeBSD, we're happy.

I think it *must* run on all *nix variants and Windows.  Dropping
Windows support I think is a non-starter.  Or, are we willing to say
we'll drop Windows support?

What type of GUIs?  What about integration with IDEs?  Eclipse?
IntelliJ?  Are we okay with losing IDE support?  Or, take the opinion
that if we switch, they'll eventually add support - this is what we
saw with Subversion, but maybe we can convince folks to lose their IDE
integration for a few years while the downstream IDE developers play
catch up.  -- justin
