The bzr-pipeline version of switch, switch-pipe, makes this a lot
nicer by associating a special shelf with each branch. When you
switch-pipe out of a branch, any uncommitted changes are stored in the
branch's shelf, and if the branch you're switch-piping into has any
shelved changes, they're automatically restored.
In lp:~abentley/bzr-pipeline/native-colo this works with any branch,
not just in a pipeline, so I find it very handy with native and
bzr-colo colocated branches.
Now that Bazaar natively supports colocation, I'd love to add this
feature, and make it the default.
