There's a bit of mismatch between Bazaar and launchpad, because
launchpad encourages branch names to end in "/trunk" and Bazaar defaults
to using the last component as the directory name.
And further, some projects have urls that do not end with the desired
Does it make sense for branches to provide a "suggested dirname"?
$ bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~bzr/bzr-gtk/trunk
would produce a directory named "gtk".
This would work better with our current plugin development practices,
which encourage people to install plugins by branching. On the other
hand, it's more config data to worry about.
Really, I'd rather fix launchpad than Bazaar, but realistically, I
figure I have more chance of fixing Bazaar.
