bk send -wgzip_uu -r<rev> - > foo-<rev>.bk

This will dump a gzipped-uuencoded changset to the file. The receiver
just do "| bk receive [repository] -avv" to import it on the other end.

My preferred format for sending BK CSETs is below. The gzip_uu CSET
data only adds maybe 10% for large patches, and about doubles the size
of very small patches. I also created a bz64 (bzip2 + base64) wrapper
which makes the CSET data smaller, but that is only useful if other BK
developers have this wrapper also.

Cheers, Andreas
