Actually, you omit important history.  Karl Fogel and I wrote a modern
workflow (one which is used successfully by many many developers in
projects using DVCSes), you and Ken'ichi screamed, Eli rewrote it to
look like CVS.  Fortunately, you guys were quite late to the party,
and everybody else either used a DVCS-enhanced workflow already, or
read the original BzrForEmacsDevs with the DVCS-enhanced workflow.

So we'll actually never know whether the current version of
BzrForEmacsDevs was a bad idea in general.  But you should be aware
that it is very much adapted to a very small number of Emacs voices
with disproportionate weight.
