You of all people should know that in this case Bazaar docs say what
the developers meant and faithfully describe what bzr does.

(My problem with Bazaar docs is that it doesn't say enough.  When it
does describe something, the description is usually correct, although
it could be misplaced and hard to find.)

Since this is about Bazaar, I was talking about this meaning, and this
meaning alone.

The issue is not whether this bzr behavior is useful.  The issue is
whether it is by design and documentation.  Stefan thinks he was not
cherrypicking, so he believes that the parts of the docs I cited are
not applicable to what he did.
