No, I didn't. I was under the impression, from exchanges on the
mailing list, that with bzr+ that the http transport would probe for
smart server support and use it, if it was available.

I did just give bzr+https and try, and that works, but it'd be really
nice not to have to specify bzr+ every time to make this go.
