To bring this thread around to some closure:

>  $ cat /etc/redhat-release && /home/app/bin/serve-branches ~/bzr/blah
>  CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core)
>  DEBUG:paste.httpserver.ThreadPool:Started new worker 139704170727168: Initial 
> worker pool
>  <snip />
>  serving on view at
>  $ lynx http://localhost:8080/
>  Alert!: HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found

All my problems with 404s go away on CentOS 7 if I change the command used
to invoke serve-branches:

1) Add --allow-writes to the serve-branches command line.

2) Do not add --allow-writes, but do prefix the served path with "file://".

So I still don't know why CentOS 7 needs these things and other operating
systems do not, but bug 1097567 questions whether the issue might be
related to middleware.

I also reported success here:
