My only objection is doing this without some thinking before and then 
splintering the community.

That said, I do approve of a move to git.

I can think of the following arguments against it (and rebuttals):

- can't access git over my company's firewall
  huh? How are you accessing CVS now?

- can't easily install it on Windows
  msysgit has made a lot of progress recently and we have developers using 
  it exclusively at the office instead of p4.
