So I should give an update. The final patch landed without a new RPC,
that just fixes BzrDirFormatMeta1.require_stacking(). It means you may
get a bogus "upgrading branch format" message, but you at least get the
correct formats when everything is done. (And I *think* the message is
just going to be in the server log, and not shown to the user.)

That landed as 4406.

I'm also trying to land the --dev7 format with bencoded revisions and a
pyrex bencode implementation. I keep getting tripped up by trivial
things like the "test_source" noticing that it had an old-format GPL header.
