    or in the opposite direction : your changesets sent to linus have to be
    patches against the pristine tree, not against your-working-tree-with-
    several-patches-that-linus-doesn't-have.

    (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 :)
