I knew that, but AFAIK, currently, bzr can write only on local
archives, can be exported with rsync, and can be accessed through

Also, I suppose the current file-store archive format is easier to
make transactional. I don't know how concurrent accesses can be
managed with the weave format on a dumb fileserver.

You can access an archive for read and write, potentially concurrent,
the same way for ftp, sftp, WebDAV, and local archives. HTTP archives
are off course read-only.

(The WebDAV is a typical useless feature for 95% of the world, but it
is THE killer feature for people like me often working behind a
firewall with HTTP proxy).
