That's not true. I've used perforce for a  while and I  love the edit
command.  In fact, even if I make temporary modifications to some file (i.e,
I have no intention of committing the change), I prefer to modify it after
issuing the 'p4 edit'. That way, I can learn about all files that I changed
in my repository at any time rather than accidentally have files lying
around that were modified. And LOT of other people I know like the 'edit'
command for this reason.

The 'edit' command is optional in cvs (you need to use 'cvs watch' first) -
but I use that even there. I prefer to have my files be read-only and
explicitly make them writeable using 'cvs edit' before modifying them.

Anyways, its a matter of taste. Bazaar should provide an option to support
the 'edit' command - not force one or the other mode of usage.
