Well, the issue at hand is that the upstream authors of Bazaar 1.x have
renamed it to "baz", and given away their name to some other project
(bzr). Sooner or latter the packages will have to reflect *that*.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore,
if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not
smart enough to debug it.
