"bzr init" takes a "location" argument, but unfortunately putting an
sftp url in there does not seem to work.

I would like to be able to pull from the 0.7 user into my (private)
0.8 repository, hack, then push to a (publicly accessible) 0.7 branch
so the 0.7 user can access my hacks. Creating a 0.7 branch and pushing
into that from the 0.8 branch works, but seems to need shell access to
create the 0.7 branch.

It would be nice if there was a way (either bzr init with a url
instead of a path or a --format option to the initial push) to create
that branch without shell access.
