There isn't a whole lot that you need to do to get bzr and LaTeX to work
The biggest thing that I've run run into when using bzr + LaTeX is that
you want to try to break your paragraphs up a little bit more than you
Really this is the case for any form of textual documentation. Word
wrapping and diff algorithms don't get along very well together. This
really doesn't have anything specifically to do with bzr, it is just a
general thing about versioning documentation.
