I never did (nor do) encounter issues with that *because* I'm always
working from the root of the project so, 'cwd == bzr root' is always
true in my case.

Once in a while, for various reasons, I'm not in that directory and need
to 'bzr add' or something but at that point I never try to use 'bzr
status' output (which indeed cannot be copy/pasted).

I agree with that.

It's one of those cases where the default value cannot suit everybody
needs and should be easy to configure.

Yet, I haven't investigated what the fallouts are so just defining a
config option and changing 'bzr status' output may not be enough (and
changing bzr status output may not be that trivial either. On the other
hand, IIRC, there is a pretty decent test coverage for that).
