call for testing: auto-refresh in Bazaar Explorer

Great idea!  Please make this optional with default=on.  I work on
branches of various sizes from 2K to 20K files and up to a few hundred
directories.  Usually I want status updated right away.  But if I have
just moved a few hundred files (new libs or refactoring an old
project) I might have to wait several minutes for status to update.
So I have learned to refresh selectively.
