Thanks for the pointer.

After reading that, I think that the Emacswiki should recommend "bzr up",
not "bzr pull".  The main reason is that the Bazaar docs say one should
use `update' in this configuration.  Bazaar docs are far from ideal,
but they are very clear on this issue.  It doesn't make sense, IMO, to
confuse newcomers to Bazaar by going against the user manual, especially
if we want to save them from extra confusion.

Besides, with the trunk not treeless anymore, the chances that one-off
changes will be done there just became higher, and with them the risk
of having "bzr pull" error out ==> more confusion, and IMO for no good
