That might have helped with some cases on Google code too. So is that
going to be the point of this bug: that we should try to read from
.bzr/ or .bzr/format before trying to post to it?

...Actually I'm not sure if I understand your comment. You're saying
if we do see a .bzr/format then we should take the format name from
that, then try using rpc? It could work, though it may be a bit
strange inside bzrlib to switch to a RemoteBzrDir after we've started.
