The problem is that a new branch needs to be bootstrapped, which takes
time.  What I do to avoid that is keep the feature branch around even
after the last feature I worked on was merged into trunk and committed
upstream.  Then, when I need to work on another feature in a separate
branch again, I make the existing branch a mirror of the then current
trunk with "bzr pull --overwrite" (after "bzr status" and careful
study of its output!).  Voila! I now have a fresh branch that does not
need a bootstrap.
