Sorry, if we're considering something which doesn't support renames yet,
then clearly I set the bar for maturity far too high.  Hence I would
recommend bzr.

Actually, I don't think that there's any real deadline: with Xen bk
outside the Larry zone, sourcepuller works fine.  The pain of surviving
with patches as a mechanism is small compared to the pain of choosing a
system which ends up losing.

So, I'd say, wait.  The decision is likely to get easier in the medium
