Bug Description

at the moment it is possible to specify colocated branches in URLs. This works, but is quite annoying for local use. It would be nice if there was a shortcut to using colocated branches, e.g.:

 ../localpath,branch=foo

or perhaps even:

 ../localpath,foo

This is mostly a matter of tweaking bzrlib.transport.location_to_url.

Well, most people would like:
 cd ../localpath
 bzr log foo

Or something equivalent to that to work. The syntax there is (I think?):
 bzr log .,branch=foo

Which is more clearly a usability issue.

That's a black magic, like colon in git. Can it be simply

bzr log --branch=foo

We already have "-d branch", the question is how to spell a "URL" with
a nested branch in it.

Aaron was working on adding something like "co:foo".
