Right, the specific comment on the patch is:
  (revno 3985.2.3)
  Changed output of add to not suggest partial success.

I believe the idea is that "bzr add" can fail halfway through, and then
rollback the action. However, that is probably uncommon enough that we
may not want to put "completed" on every run.

Other than that, I agree it looks like you added the file "completed",
so if we want output we should probably change the string.
