The reaction of you (!!), Ken'ichi, and Richard to the version of
BzrForEmacsDevs that Karl wrote and I revised (with, IIRC, the
enthusiastic approval of Karl).

I just don't see any point in spending a lot of time trying to design
a great workflow in advance.  If you do, go right ahead and do it
yourself, and I wish you the good fortune that you're better at
channeling the "user to git: just stay out of my way" users than Karl
and I were.

But I see no point in asking Eric Raymond or git fans to get involved
in it.  The only point in that is for them to suggest things that work
well for them that make no sense to most users until they've had a fair
amount of experience.  And most users will go: "not now, please!"  I
suggest that you respect that reaction, and let the appropriate
workflow evolve over time.
