I really think we should test in brisbane-core anyway, actually.  So
maybe this wrinkle has a silver lining?  (M-x mix-metaphor)

Yes :-).

In our circumstances, it's okay to aim for the future.  Bzr keeps to its
release schedule pretty reliably, and we know we're not switching until
at least Q3 or Q4 anyway.  Requiring brisbane-core now will
inconvenience just a few people -- us testers.  By the time all devs
need it, it will be widely available.

So I really think it's okay.
