Resurrecting the old "bundle" implementation wouldn't fix your use case,
because "bundle" always used the default format, and the default format
is 4.

Adding --format to "send" would fix your use case, I think.  Do you need
to use -r to control the bundle contents, or does specifying a target
branch work for you?

I wish you'd spoken up sooner.  I don't even know what to call the
format options:

# Does this produce a merge directive or a bundle?
- --format=0.18 ?

# How about this?
- --format=0.9 ?

# Okay, this is clear, but think of the poor users!
- --format=md1bun0.9 ?

# Do we need to support raw bundles?  Merge Directive 1 includes the
# bundle unmolested, so clients that don't understand merge directives
# can skip the merge-directive and read the bundle directly.
- --format=raw-0.9 ?
