Remember that the network protocol used is sftp, so the remote
repository is "dumb" and cannot perform any operation such as
"annotate".  So when you do an "annotate", nothing is sent upstream
other than commands to fetch files that contain the relevant parts of
history, and then the annotate operation is performed locally.

Yes, it's a fairly slow operation, sadly.  I encourage you to complain
to the Bazaar developers about it,
