Hummm...  bzrk was always going to be a bad name -- too close to
berserk ;-)

Can I propose glog be added for consistency with all the other bzr-gtk
commands?  It seems there is a rule that for each Bazaar command that
can have a GUI dialogue, then prepend g for the GTK version and q for
the Qt version.  This is a nice rule and well worth making consistent.

(And all we don't want Bazaar to be seen as a pale imitation of Git ;-)
