For future reference it's http://bazaar-ng.org/doc/revision-syntax.html

Some notes to self on things to consider stealing from bazaar-ng, so I won't forget them:
-- they have a predicate subcommand "is". "bzr is clean" exits with status 0 if the working directory is clean, for instance.

-- "Verbose logs are always written to .bzr.log in the current directory". Why don't we write logs somewhere in MT/? Especially on crashes, that would be totally useful. Avoids the twin problems of "users don't want incomprehensible junk spewed in their face" and "users don't want incomprehensible junk scattered randomly around their filesystems". Doesn't work if we don't have a working directory, of course. Could drop it in $TMPDIR or something, I suppose.

-- http://bazaar-ng.org/revision-syntax.html
in particular, I like "It might even be possible to chain them, getting the file id from one revision and its state from another: @70/hello.c@31 This means "the file that was called hello.c in revision 70, give me its state in revision 31."" Neat idea, could be very useful. I've totally been wanting syntax for file-in-revision lately...
