[Pkg-bazaar-maint] freeze exception request for bzr 2.2

Bazaar 2.2.0 was released a day after the freeze of squeeze and uploaded
to sid the same day. 

This particular release series contains a large number of bug fixes
(~100) and performance improvements, it would be great if those could
make it into Squeeze. Upstream does a good job at automated testing and
QA; I have confidence this will not result in major regressions. There
are some new features, but mostly things like new command line options,
not major overhauls.

For Lenny, we decided not to request a freeze exception for Bazaar 2.0,
as it had not yet been released (only an RC) at freeze time. In
hindsight this was a mistake as Lenny shipped with Bazaar 1.5, which was
outdated before Lenny was even released.

Is there any chance bzr 2.2.0 and two packages that are tied to it
(bzrtools and bzr-rewrite, both of which are also maintained by the
Bazaar maintainers team) could be unblocked?
