Can you file a wishlist request about this? bzrtools used to provide
this feature in Bazaar land, but we haven't yet ported it to Breezy.

As a workaround, Flavio's suggestion of using /usr/bin/colordiff
should work in the meantime.

It only removes the branch, not the entire control directory.

You can see the effects of this in the output of "bzr branches".
Control directories can be removed with standard tools - e.g. "rm -rf"

Perhaps we should make this clearer, though I'm not sure what the best
way is to do that. Suggetions?
