Bug Description

bzr currently tries to read the user identity from .bzr/branch/email as well as from the usual configuration files and the environment.

we should get rid of the .bzr/branch/email file, because it adds an extra roundtrip when working over the network. There is also no support in bzr for actually writing to this file (other than in the testsuite), so it seems unlikely anybody is actually using it.
