By default, they do. You must use a flag to get a checkout with no history.

It's a mirror of a branch, and a copy of the branch's working tree.

Sure, and so can bzr. But using a checkout of the branch head means:
- - No one has to do anything special to provide a working tree of a given
- - I can still run any readonly operations I desire
- - I can update to the latest version of bzr.dev with one command.
