Not really (for the workflow advertised by Stephen and Karl.)

At the time (and possibly still now) rebasing was not the soundest part
of bzr. So the remaining workflows were "merge+push" and
"pull". "merge+push" have the serious inconveniences described on my
other post on this thread. So Stephen went for the remaining one:
"pull", which is simulated with bound branches. When a developer does
"merge+commit" on his local branch bound to upstream, it is the
equivalent of `pull' on the remote branch.
