Well, we call them 'checkouts' :). bound branches is somewhat of an
internal description.

We implemented checkouts to be a precise workflow match for what you get
from SVN/CVS - a branch shared between developers with the system
ensuring you have merged everything. If you have a situation where a
shared branch is what you want, and you like bzr in other respects... I
would recommend trying checkouts.
