True, but I don't think that's the question. That is, you don't need
to keep the po files around for a preconfigured and built install.
However, since Bazaar is GPL, the po files count as source, and you
may as well distribute them. I wouldn't say it's "broken" if they're
missing, but it's sort of against the spirit of a Python program
distributed as source to forget the po files or to suggest you should
bzr them down.
