I didn't say it was relevant.  I was just reflecting on documentation
quality, separately from the rest of this thread.

That's still "habit" from my POV: you are used to certain workflows,
and bzr doesn't lend itself easily to those workflows.  Same happens
to me in git: I _want_ to have separate branches, but git forces me to
have a separate repo for each branch, if I insist on that workflow...
