maybe `bzr split ...` would do the trick for you:
Purpose: Split a subdirectory of a tree into a separate tree.
Usage: bzr split TREE
-v, --verbose Display more information.
-q, --quiet Only display errors and warnings.
-h, --help Show help message.
This command will produce a target tree in a format that supports
rich roots, like 'rich-root' or 'rich-root-pack'. These formats cannot be
converted into earlier formats like 'dirstate-tags'.
The TREE argument should be a subdirectory of a working tree. That
subdirectory will be converted into an independent tree, with its own
branch. Commits in the top-level tree will not apply to the new subtree.
