hmm... this seems to be either too little or too much:

* too little: because, for example, when I set up a project for writing a paper,
  I also need to run a homegrown script to create appropriate Makefiles, etc...

* too much: because, if setting up a certain project type requires executing
  additional setup scripts, why not use a script to setup the "ignores" that I
  really care about (especially when what to ignore maybe heavily dependent on
  idiosyncratic naming conventions).

So, basically, I like the "bzr init --defaults <TYPE>" idea, but only if <TYPE>
denotes an arbitrary initialization procedure, not just a set of default
