Ok.  So, since my Emacs trunk tree is a mirror of the Savannah trunk and
I only update it, I can't use vc-dir to do this.  Moreover, I can't use
it to merge the updated files from the trunk to my quickfixes branch.
But once I have merged them from the command line, I can see them vc-dir
(I just did this and do see them).  So now I should be able to commit
the merged files, right?  I type `M' to mark all the files, then `v',
then a log buffer pops, I write "Merge from trunk", type `C-c C-c' and
get:

"bzr: ERROR: Selected-file commit of merges is not supported yet: files
ChangeLog, configure, configure.in, lisp/ChangeLog, lisp/play/tetris.el,
lisp/progmodes/ps-mode.el, src/ChangeLog, src/alloc.c, src/font.c,
src/frame.c, src/ralloc.c, src/w32menu.c"

Does that mean I can only commit single files?  It doesn't seem worth
using vc-dir for that.  I think the manual should document these
limitations.
