Bazaar does not currently support recording file copies. Currently only
one copy can be linked to the history, the other must be added as a new
It is a feature that is hoped for in the future.

To revert a file to a previous version then you can use revert. However
to do a copy to a new file from a previous version of another I would
bzr cat -r -5 file > copy-of-file
but again this does not record the file copy and "copy-of-file" would
have to be added as a new file.
