I'm not aware of a way of entering newline characters on the windows 
command prompt so that they are passed to the executables. (Though, I 
might be wrong.)

If you're using bzr interactively, then leaving out the "-m" option 
results in a text editor (typically notepad.exe) where you can enter 
your message.

Otherwise you might consider using the "-F" option to read the commit 
message from a file.
