That seems like a workable approach. A disadvantage is that by putting all
of those binaries into bzr, you'd get a large .bzr directory, with all of
the previous versions of every binary. However, that would only be true on
the master host. On the slave hosts you could use lightweight checkouts
and so not take up all of the extra space there for history.
A lighter-weight approach would be to use rsync or unison instead, to
synchronize the satellite hosts to the master. That would avoid the space
and work overhead of keeping the version control history, but you'd lose
the ability to roll back changes if for some reason they created problems.
