The implementation shelves all the changes on the current
branch. Although this is useful, an usual application of `shelve' is for
temporarily removing out of your way some changes (allowing to commit
only specific changes of the edited files, for example.) An ideal
implementation of `shelve' for vc would show the output of `bzr diff',
mark the hunks you want to shelve, and then run the command. Sadly, it
seems impossible to non-interactively indicate to bzr which hunks it
should shelve.

As mentioned on a previous message, `bzr shelf1 list' should do what you
need. It is from bzrtools, which is a popular plugin. However, the
command either is broken or I don't know how to use it. I'll ask on the
bazaar ml.
