I'm actually using it all the time.  It's a misunderstanding if you
think "git reflog" is the answer to what I'm looking for.

~/.bzr.log shows:

  . every bzr command, including the date/time when it was issued
  . every message displayed by every command on the console, including
    for example received/transmitted statistics
  . additional messages, such as the branch on which the command was
  . every error message, including Python backtrace
  . for pull/update/merge commands, the list of changes in the same
    format used by "bzr status" and "git status --short"
