Which would also be a far superior way to deal with centralized bzr. It
protects the repository against screwups on the developer's local bzr
package (he might be running an alpha version, for example :P), and it
provides a central point of control, which is interesting *when dealing with
centralized repositories*. Heck, we could adopt even the
signed-of-by/acked-by workflow from the Linux kernel where desired...
