Alexander: I know you are asking for iput from core dev's.  Just let me add
my voice to saying that you understand the user experience correctly.  I
have refrained from saying anything about this in qbzr because I do not have
time to develop a fix that will make everyone happy.  But I will say that
Bazaar Explorer exposes this issue very strongly.

Maybe I'm thinking about htis too simply, but it seems to me that the only
check which needs to be performed on the target filesystem when creating a
new (non-shared) branch is to make sure the target directory does not
already have a .bzr repository.  (Trying to create a shared repo on top of
an existing branch (shared or non-shared) needs to be prevented, right?)
