@Adrian:  Thanks for bringing this up.  I didn't know about Jelmer's
previous work.

@Jelmer:  I had a look at the branches of bzr on and
didn't see one of yours with 248333 or 'permissions' in the name.  Is
it still there?  Do you still have access to that code?  Would you be
willing to resurrect this branch?

This looks like a nasty usability problem for some users that with
some coding effort could "Just work."  You made some good suggestions
for directions toward a solution in the bug report that make it sound
like the coding effort should be moderate to minimal if someone were
able to start from your branch.
