Create a branch with limited history

Registered by John A Meinel on 2006-09-02

Right now bzr has 2 types of checkouts. Heavy ones, which contain the complete history, and lightweight ones, which contain *no* history information.

We would like to introduce a 'shallow' or middleweight branch/checkout. Most likely, this would be a branch with some history (at least enough to contain the basis for the current revision, sufficient that a 'bzr commit' can succeed). This might optionally defer back to the originating branch for any information it does not have yet.
