Bug Description

Running "bzr diff -r branch:newer_pipeline" worked just fine, but running "bzr vimdiff -r branch:newer_pipeline" caused a crash.

There's nothing about this that's pipeline-specific. It's just crashing because the branch: revision spec takes a read-lock, but vimdiff tries to fetch any missing revisions, which requires a write lock.

summary: - crash when using vimdiff plugin with pipelines
+ crash when using vimdiff plugin with branch: revision spec

Actually, I got the locks reversed, but it's still just an old issue with branches and revision specs.
