I would expect most distros to use either /usr/include or /opt/mumble.  
The mumble might be standardized by now, I dunno.    Perhaps I'm 
far enough removed from distros these days that I'm wrong; that would
be nice.

Emacs moved from CVS to Bazaar for political reasons, and while it
has settled down, it was pretty painful for a while.  Also, most of the 
things that people wanted to do in bzr but couldn't easily make work
seemed to be things that were easy and useful in git.

Hope that helps,
