Thanks for your replies.

We do not use shared repositories: in our setup the (peer) reviewer of a patch only has read access to our central repository, so a "checkout --lightweight" followed by a "bzr merge" fails:
bzr: ERROR: Cannot lock
[Errno 13] Permission denied:
I am very much looking forward to the shallow branches update I have
seen being discussed - at least if they are the branch equivalent of a
lightweight checkout. Is there a timeframe for the 1.3 and 1.4 releases?
In other words - how long do I have to hold my breath?

But is the bit set or removed? bzr diff just says "=== modified file
'file' (properties changed)"
BTW: Not connected with the above discussion, but I have just ported the
GNU indent repository to bazaar, and will soon be making it available
via http:. Bazaar is thus being used in yet another project.
