Right but it seems to me that "bzr branch --stacked; bzr bind $URL"
has all the capabilities and advantages of checkout plus the ability
of local commits if one needs so.  Is there a senario for which
checkout --lightweight would be superior?  (The same question holds
for a heavyweight checkout versus a bound branch.)
