yes, the default is to show the top-level commit history.

yes, those urls are unusable as information to others,
and I too am used to being able to paste a direct reference
into irc, email, and bugs.

webserve is not directly part of bzr, and more than cvsweb
and others are directly part of cvs. I also find these
two issues to be unfortunate behavior of that interface,
and wish there was something that worked a little more
like the familiar cvs interfaces in this area.
