I understand this. And I think
'bzr lightweight checkouts' == 'svn checkouts' aka 'working copy'

But I stumble over 'heavyweight checkout' term. Especially in Olive
commit dialog that has option 'Local commit'. This option has sense
only in case heavyweight checkouts. I don't think that call them
also 'working copies' is good. Or I'm wrong?
