In case you missed it, bzrk is already a part of a gui for bzr:

There's another more important question behind this: today, there are
sereval graphical tools for bzr (bzrk, gannotate), the question is
whether you'd do a single GUI tool for all interesting operations, or
one GUI corresponding to one command for each operation.

In other words, if I want a graphical annotate, shall I do

$ bzr gannotate file


$ bzr <name-of-the-gui>
<click "annotate" somewhere in the GUI>

Indeed, I'd like to have both: a central GUI from which other
operations can be done (better for user-friendliness), but keep some
portion of the GUI callable from the command-line (better for people
used to the command-line).

And BTW, my vote goes for « olive ».
