Sorry, my mistake, item 2 isn't an error, ignore that one.

I'm trying to put several versions of software (stored in tarballs) into
a bzr repository in order. I'm trying to replicate what changed in each
version so that the bzr repository stores an accurate history, but I
just got some things wrong. I guess in general I should add new files
then remove old ones, but actually I want each new version to be
atomically different.
