That sounds about right but I don't understand the command-line syntax.
I would expect 'bzr graft FROM_DIR TO_DIR', where the two directories
are presently in different branches.  (Did you mean to just say 'graft
bar foo'?)

I think foo should be the name of a new or existing directory under the
destination branch.  If it's the root of the branch, then bar will be
grafted in at the root (similar to a merge of unrelated trees with the
current code.)  So typical use will be 'bzr graft ../somelibrary

We should test that revert correctly undoes the graft as I imagine
people will fairly often change their mind or decide to graft it
somewhere else.
