OK, thanks for all the feedback on bzr.  I'll try to make a little
cheat sheet from this discussion and see how it goes.  Ultimately we
might send that info back to the bzr team for their docs.  I feel
their 'Workflows' pages and sections of the guide are woefully
insufficient in critical details (like a number of things you've
clarified here).

Cheers,
