Push location hiding

One thing which is a bit annoying currently is a conflict between
setting a default push location in ~/.bazaar/locations.conf and having
an explicit location for a given directory.
Specifically, I tend to work on a lot of branches in different
directories, so defaulting a push to my server is very nice. I do that with:
push_location = bzr+ssh://server/srv/bzr/public/repo/
push_location:policy = append_path
Which works very well when I create a new branch, and want to publish it.
However, sometimes I want to have that branch mirrored onto launchpad
rather than my repository.
So I can do:
bzr push --remember lp:~jameinel/bzr/my-branch
Everything thinks it is okay. However the push location is saved to
.bzr/branch/branch.conf. And 'locations.conf' overrides branch.conf,
even though one is achieved recursively, and the other is explicitly for
I don't have any way to force the remember, other than manually hacking
locations.conf for that branch.
Is there something better that we could be doing? Some way that we could
get --remember to actually --remember? (Certainly we should probably at
least be warning if we don't)
