Is "bzr init-repo bzr+ssh://" something we are really trying to
optimize? I can see optimizing "bzr push bzr+ssh://" which creates a new
repository, but the former is not really a performance critical piece of

As for me, I've come to like the display, so I'd rather not see it go.
(though I'll admit I don't like it enough to spend the time to bring it
back if it was voted off).

So IMO, I'm willing to accept the extra 11 round trips for a
non-critical command, rather than either asking anyone to spend a lot of
time optimizing it, or getting rid of a nice UI feature.

If you feel strongly, you can get rid of it, but it wouldn't be my choice.
