Sorry, it's been one of those days.

When I've hand-patched my changes over from Git to Bzr, it has often happened
to me that I can't do it fast enough before some other Bzr change comes down
the pipe.  Then I try to do a merge, but merging in Bzr makes no sense to me
(yet), so I fail miserably and start the process over.  Once I had to do this
3 times before I could get the commit in.

The problem for me is, I have no other use for Bazaar, and my brain is too
full to try and master another VCS to the extent of being fluent enough not to
be bothered by things like this, so instead I just keep my changes local.

It's an inertia thing, really.  I could find a solution to my problem, I'm
just not motivated to.  In fact, I'm anti-motivated each time I try to touch
Bzr, and it's *just* weird enough from a Git standpoint to cause me problems.

Like when I commit, and the commit goes straight to remote (wait!  I wanted to
push that with other commits!).  Or I set the up indirection, and find later
that my push pushed to a local directory instead of remote (what?  you didn't
get my change?  I just pushed it!).  Etc.
