That would clearly be part of the whole effort. Partisans for any

deciding if we find certain tools simply can't be used at all!

I think that before we try to import our tree to new VCS. We should
make a basic candidate list, because we don't need to spend time and effort with converting out tree to e.g. monotone when we clearly know that we will never import such tool into our base system. For start it would be good if
every VCS partisan here try to fill form like this[1] and we can then
decide which tools can be useable.
