Agreed. I think that name will work directly against communicating to
Bazaar users the function of this plugin.

The concept to be communicated, as I see it, is that the plugin
permits multiple branches to co-exist in a single working tree.

    virtual branches
    switchable branches
    in-place branches
    co-habitating branches
