Do you mean "are there files in .bzr that don't need to be in the  
backup?"  Yes, there are a few -- basis-inventory and stat-cache come  
to mind -- but they are generally not of a size where you'd have to  
worry about it.

I'm not sure init should produce one by default.  We could have some  
code to produce one on demand for particular formats.  Or perhaps we  
should just put a list on the wiki?
