Is there some other (non-programming) way of adding per-project

First I was thinking of personal defaults in ~/.bzrrc and per-project in
the working area but for obvious reasons that wouldn't be very good.

Maybe it'd be possible to put several config files in ~/.bzr/?
For projectA we'd first load ~/.bzr/bzr.conf and then let things in
~/.bzr/projectA.conf override... I guess I should put some code behind
all this rambling instead.

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

I'd doubt that it represents a threat to anything but the notion that you can
sell bad code by refusing to let anyone see what's in the box.
