or in the opposite direction : your changesets sent to linus have to be
patches against the pristine tree, not against your-working-tree-with-

(tying your response to Ingo into this one :)

it makes sense : any submitted patches should be against a known-clean
state, which means that the 'linear' element that people complain about
is actually bk enforcing some rather logical development practices.

but if linus isn't going to accept changesets (only patches) anyways,
then i guess it really doesn't matter :)
