That's very hard to do in a secure way: baz hooks are arbitrary code, and
have to be ran on the client since there's no real server. And I don't
want arbitrary code to be executed on my machine when I run baz ...

pqm is a solution. arch-trigger is another one.

I don't know how bzr can handle this. If there's support for sandboxing in
Python, the plugin system of bzr can probably implement this in an elegant
and secure way.

in bazaar 1.5, baz build-config --update is not far from what you're
looking for. baz build-config without --update will do a "baz switch" to
the version specified in the config file. Not yet perfect, but better than
1.4 IMHO.

I prefer bzr to take its time and provide something really good than hurry
and release a half finished stable version soon ;-).
