Google App Engine as static web server, bazaar vs. git

I've been serving http://www.emmesdee.com as a google app ( http://msdewww.appspot.com ) since august 2008 without any problems, but I'm thinking about switching to DryDrop. My big resistance at this point is actually version control. When I did my research into distributed version control a couple of years ago, bazaar looked more interesting to me than git, partially because it was more like svn to me than git, and partially because it seemed the easiest to host. All you need for a "repository" is just ssh access to a linux box and a directory.
