Why do you say bzr encourages this?  'bzr merge' will error by default
if the tree is dirty.

There are bzr commands that implicitly merge the uncommitted changes
of the wt onto a new base: pull, switch, and update, leaving the
results uncommitted.  They may conflict.  But git-checkout also
carries your uncommitted changes without needing to be forced, and
istr hg does too.
