You'll better use

bzr pull --remember sftp://bzr.sv.gnu.org/srv/bzr/emacs/trunk

just in case the branch already has `pull branch' (not to confuse with
the parent branch, for setting this you need to edit a configuration
file under the .bzr directory of the branch, IIRC). After all, you are
copying raw files and can't assume a lot about the configuration of the
branches you are obtaining.

The operation should be done for each branch on the repo (using the
correct URL to the remote branch), because `bzr pull', as almost every
other command, works on only one branch.

Uh, I forgot how much `bzr branch' sucks for cloning large branches
across the internet.
