Supporting nested trees in Bazaar

Registered by Robert Collins on 2005-10-27

There is desire to split trees into subsections 1. because they contain parts that can vary (e.g. libraries that are also used elsewhere, or are sourced from other locations or projects) and 2. as a performance-enhancing technique. Can we do better than configs? Or can we use configs as an under-the-hood mechanism and provide a transparent UI that lets the tree feel like a single entity ?
