I decided to get rid of bzr-fastimport; too much complexity for not really that 
much of a gain.

The only feature I know is missing is support for executable modes and links.

I haven't verified that the resulting output is exactly the same as with other
tools, so be careful while using this.

Also, for the moment I'm not making a distinction betwen local and remote
repositories; they all get a local clone.

Pushing is significantly slower than with bzr-fastimport, but they are using
too many hacks on top of bzrlib, one that has left it broken it for years for
many people, and nobody has bothered to fix it, I had to find it the hard way
and disable the hack. I think the hit in perfromance is completely OK given
that we are using a more conventional bzrlib API, and going to be less likely
to be broken in the future.
