If you are annoyed by committing to the bound branch, then use the
separate local branch and then merge to the bound one and commit.
This is the second workflow suggested by the Wiki.

However, if you don't rebase your local branch, that will have an
undesirable consequence of having several unrelated commits appear as
one revision on mainline (unless one uses -n0 switch to "bzr log").

Why is the commit time annoying, btw?  You could continue working
during that time, can't you?

Install the changelog_merge plugin
(https://launchpad.net/bzr-changelog-merge), and you will never ever
have merge conflicts in ChangeLog files.  This will be included in the
next version 2.4 of bzr, but for now you will need to install it
