AIUI, no, it's not.  AIUI, this causes the referenced branch to pull
from its default source.  That's probably OK if the referenced branch
is bzr+ssh://savannah/emacs/trunk, since it shouldn't have a parent.
But if you're working on a a checkout of a feature branch branched
from trunk, this will cause the feature branch to pull from trunk.

This probably isn't a big problem, because if there are any changes in
your checkout, they'll be propagated to the feature branch by the
binding.  This will prevent pull from making any changes to the
feature branch (either the test for fast-forward will fail, or there
haven't been any changes to trunk since the feature branch).  It might
be confusing if the pull fails with messages about diverging from
trunk, though.
