I forgot to mention, by lazy-import tree is available at:

I basically have showed that it is possible to speed things up a little
bit. I would guess 50% is the most that we could do. For 'time bzr root'
I got it down to 0.23/0.55 = 41% of the time.For 'time bzr status' it is
down to .972/1.73 = 90% of the time.

I can create a patch for this if requested. But it is a pretty big
change, so is probably better to get from my repository.
