Is there a way to set it up so a) checking out Emacs from Bazaar gives
the elpa.gnu.org (GNU ELPA) code branch as well, and b) changes made in
such a checkout propagate back to the GNU ELPA branch?  That seems like
a lot of magic but Bazaar seems to excel in magic :)

If so, the difference is server-side and won't matter to the
developers.  But otherwise we should revise the instructions for
checking out Emacs to make it clear the GNU ELPA code is part of Emacs
and should be checked out alongside.
