Mmh, what if you have stuff in your local copy that you're playing
with still but not quite ready to commit?  I'm not sure I like the
idea that the local branch must be immediately gone after each commit.
 It seems to me that the iptrunk branch should be pretty 'pure' from
local work, but I do want a more long-lived area for local work.  Or
is this just 'going against the grain' of bzr workflow?
