thank you! I shall try tomorrow; but, let's be honest, that's just a
sucky solution (if it works at all) ;-) it exposes to all processes
information that should preferably remain private.
I believe it is important that bzr considers the increasingly tightened
restrictions on network access in universities (and, I imagine, other
places as well). We need documented ways to make things work in this
increasingly paranoid and hostile world, and/or ways to argue-for/setup
secure tunnels for specific vcs activities (such as ssh connections to
launchpad.net which do not constitute a security risk) that demonstrably
(ahem...) cannot introduce security concerns for our institutions.
