I played a little with bzr 0.01. It looks very promising. I particularly 
like the fact that you are being careful to avoid the errors of other vc 

Case in point: In subversion, if you remove a file under version control, 
the file itself is deleted. This is (in my opinion) a misfeature, and 
hopefully will be fixed in the future. Ok, you have to force it if you 
have local changes, but still... I'm glad to see bzr is not making the 
same mistake.

I had one small suggestion/request. In subversion, there are short forms 
for commands, eg.

status -> st
commit -> ci
diff -> di
remove -> rm

I like these, and it would be nice if they could be added to bzr, unless 
there is some reason not to.

Keep up the good work!
