This is an interesting analysis since I tried to use looms with an rpn
package whose patchset I was maintaining with quilt.  looms were
not at all easy to use in this scenario.

I think the problem was colocated branches.  I like bzr more than cvs, hg,
and git because branches are not colocated.  Adding looms colocation on top
of bzr either didn't work for me personally or wasn't a successful weldding
of the technology's UI onto bzr... I'm not sure which.

I'll have to try out pipelines on the same sort of thing to see if they are
easier or harder to use in this situation.
