Not being a user, I can't give a definitive answer. That said, you may
consider teaching the code about a "trunk" branch. And then when you
push up a new branch, it gives you the:
  bzr log -rancestor:../trunk..-1

That is sort of where Launchpad is going, with the "development focus"
branch, which is the default branch used for stacking, etc.
