Maybe I was lucky, but I successfully branched the trunk via http last
night, on my first try.  It took about 50 minutes for bzr to download
281 MB, then, as reported above, it appeared to stall for more than 10
minutes, but the bzr process continued to consume 80-90% CPU.  (This is
with an Athlon XP 2100+ (1.7 GHz) and 2 GB RAM over a rather slow
wireless connection.)  Just as I was about to kill it, it finished.  I
then made a quickfixes branch from the (now local) trunk, which took
only about 10 seconds, and bootstrapped from the quickfixes branch
without a problem.
