branch nicks and checkouts...

I would like a checkout to get the same branch nick as the branch it's
bound to.

The following should work I'd think

cd branch
bzr nick foobar
cd ..
bzr checkout branch branch1
cd branch1
bzr nick  -> should return foobar.

This is what happens if I run a lightweight checkout and it's
surprising that they behave differently (well.. looking at how bzr
works, it's not strange, but for a end user a checkout is just a
lightweight checkout with a cache :) )
