Maybe in theory.  Do you always commit _all_ your changes? don't you
sometimes leave some of them out because you are still working on them
or testing them?  And what about all those ChangeLog entries you made
while working in the branch -- won't you rewrite them at least to some
extent for committing to the trunk?

Besides, personally I'm not even sure ``everything is in sync'' even
if you commit everything.  I think that the DAG representing the
branch will still be different from the one representing the trunk,
due to local commits.  Somebody who knows more about bzr internals,
please confirm or refute this.
