Ehhh, I don't know. I know it's on the radar, but I don't know if
there's anything concrete yet. You'd really have to ask someone else.

Yes, "bzr serve" is the smart server.

If you have bzr installed and SSH set up, use "bzr+ssh" as the protocol
in the client instead of "sftp" and Bazaar will ssh in and run the smart
server, with no other setup required. On Windows, I don't know how easy
it is to set up SSH or if there are other problems...

You can also replace anonymous http access with "bzr", which runs on its
own port, or "bzr+http", which uses an HTTP CGI script.
