And that's a show stopper for me. For build bot maintenance, regression
fixes, etc... being able to easily tell the number of commits between two
revisions (in my head as opposed to using a tool) or the ordering of
commits is crucial.

Then for everything else I use git and its power locally.

Right. Git clients are pretty nice.
