I don't think so.  There should not be any problems related to
building, *except* that the workflow common in "small" projects of
using "bzr branch" a lot without a shared repository should be avoided
in Emacs because the overhead of "make bootstrap" is noticable, and
unnecessary with an appropriate workflow.

I think you're the first person I've seen to worry about it, so I
don't think it's a FAQ.  When EmacsForBzrDevs is updated, we can just
add "You can just build and test as usual in the 'trunk' branch if you
use it for quick fixes."
