I never properly thanked you for the great information here, so...  

I've finally gotten around to integrating all the comments and  
fleshing out the workflow scenarios.  The only open questions I don't  
have good answers for are on CRLF->LF support and case-insensitive  
file system support.  On the latter, all I can say is that I share  
branches between Linux and OS X all the time.  I did a `bzr mv Mailman  
mailman` on Linux (obviously) and when I pulled the changes into my OS  
X branch, everything worked perfectly.

Having no Windows machines, I can't really say anything about CRLF->LF.

I would love to have someone sanity check my latest rev of the  
document.  Here's the url again:
