Heh.  I'll volunteer to have been inconsistent with something I
previously said, if it will stop this particular subthread :-).

Anyway, the thing that upsets people about too many choices is being
ill-equipped to deal with them.  So rather than delete workflow
documentation that some people (RMS, Glenn Morris, et al) find useful, I
think a strategy of being clear about

  - our recommended entry point (for those who need one), and
  - what each piece of documentation is for, and
  - how it relates to the others

is best.  That default entry point should be BzrForEmacsDevs, IMHO.

I think we're close to switching now; it depends on the pretest
schedule, which I'm not following.  I'll post separately about that.
