Query about selecting version on remote hosts

Thanks for this one, I should have checked it out before emailing.

location-based information is exactly the issue here:  deciding whether
to set the remote bzr to use (by whatever means) is dependent on which
server is hosting the branch being pushed to.  So I cannot set anything
in the environment on a permanent basis, and doing it on a manual basis
is irritating.

I guess I need to learn more about sections in the configuration files,
locations.conf most likely.  It looks like I will be able to set up per
remote host, per branch data so as to be able to do "bzr push" always
and the right remote bzr is always used.

Speculating wildly:  If a branch can have location specific, branch
specific information, then remote branch tracking, Git style, must be
possible.  gitk's ability to present information about the local
branches and the explicitly tracked remote branches (even though the
information may potentially be out of date) is a *huge* plus for Git.
qlog can handle the local branches in a shared repository, but that
remote tracking is missing: and I use it a surprising amount, most
particularly for managing a remote hosted mainline from my local master.
