Yep -- as I recall the motivation was that juju commands should block
until they've read/written all the state they're responsible for. So
bootstrap exits fast, because it does all it can quite quickly; the next
command may block for a while because it's waiting for state to exist,
but once it's performed its interactions it too can exit.
