Yeah, everything's possible, but when you're doing local commits
you're still going to get needless compilation and relinking because
the bzr rev number has changed. Generally the bzr revno is a bit of a
pain for developers if you commit often but useful for everyone else.
I guess someone could improve the situation if they had the time, but
re-compilation and re-linking everytime would be a bit of a step
