You will be soon familar with bzr once you use it. It is simple. I had concerns
when i was trying to use bzr to maintain package, because I had zero knowledge
about bzr at that time. But finally I got used to bzr to maintain
debian package. :)
It's very convenient to use launchpad to maintain debian package. And
you could try
bzr-builddeb, you would love it.
