I don't know which bzr you're using, but does save commit
messages.  Unfortunately, the implementation introduces a regression, so
I'm going to revert it if someone doesn't fix it soon.

We don't call them "bound branches" anymore.  They're "heavyweight
checkouts".  If you uncommit in a checkout, you should expect to
uncommit the revision from the branch you checked out.  Where else could
you uncommit from?

I suppose we could print the branch that will be uncommitted from as
part of the message.  That would be redundant for standalone trees, but
could theoretically be useful for lightweight checkouts as well.
