Surely switch would be easier if you want to keep the same tree.
Personally I also use lightweight checkouts. I have a structure that looks
To create a branch and build the tree I use
tim at spike:~src/project$ bzr cbranch trunk feature-x
where cbranch is aliased to 'cbranch --lightweight --hardlink'
and locations.conf has:
cbranch_target = /home/tim/repo/bzr
cbranch_target:policy = appendpath
This way when I'm finished with a branch, I go:
tim at spike:~src/project$ rm -r feature-x
