Now that I reread it as I quoted him, I see your point!

Unfortunately, it really is hard to tell given that both Mark and the
users want format stability badly, and the developers *do* keep
promising that This Time Is Different (specifically, that from now on
they'll do a better job of keeping format changes out of the users'
faces, and that they're over the performance hump).  I think both of
those are actually true -- but neither promise is going to be kept
100%, and (on historical form) the bzr.devs are not going to be able
to resist the temptation to achieve performance improvements with
format tweaks.
