This is multiple branches sharing a single repository (which is usually
elsewhere), a way to save on disk space.

What is generally wanted is the ability for a bzr working tree to be
trivially switched between the different branches available in the bzr
repository (which is nominally in the same .bzr directory).

$ bzr branch lp:wibble/trunk wibble
$ cd wibble
$ bzr branches
$ bzr switch bug1234

(At least, that's what I understand)
