I wrote a little patch in order to add the option "--fileserver" to the 
webserve plugin. So now it can handle your request.

Only two note:
1) the webserve can handle only a request x time
2) it not possible to restrict the user who can access to the repository
3) path with ".." are considered invalid

In order to permit the webserve to provide a file, you have to use 
the "--fileserver" switch

user at server $ bzr webserve --help
usage: bzr webserve [NAME] [ROOTREPOSITORY]

Start the webserver

    --acceslog ARG
    --address ARG
    --errorlog ARG
    --help, -h                show help message
    --port ARG
    --style ARG
    --templates ARG

user at server $ bzr webserve --fileserver	# start the server

otheruser at client $ bzr branch http://server:8088/path-which-you-want

<path-which-you-want> is only used to decide the destination directory, you 
can omit, in this case the destination directory is something 
like "server:8088"

Comments are welcome.
