Possibly the operation is very chatty.

I don't think so.

The `branches' command is implemented by the bzrtools plugin, so it
can't be considered a bug, or even a perfomance issue, on Bazaar proper.

Bazaar has a plugin architecture which makes very easy to add
functionality to it (in Python). There are some impressive plugins, like
my favorite, bzr-svn, which IMO turns bzr into a better Subversion
client than svn itself.
