Agreed. As for the argument that it's more convenient for tools,
I don't believe it either: it'll just make tools behave erratically,
especially since tools are much worse than humans at noticing some
inconsistency (unless that inconsistency leads to an actual error).
I'd rather have a separate option or command that asks Bzr to guess file
(and directory) addition/removal/renames.
