I actually meant a form on loggerhead, so that I can supply my local
foo.c to the remote loggerhead. e.g. if I have a copy of 'bzr' locally,
what is different to the trunk bzr? And for extra points was there ever
an identical version?

the sense that an interactive UI should be much more capable.

No, I was talking about bringing in related useful data automatically.
