Actually, there is: you just need to do a "stop&copy".
Just that the copy needs to be done with "bzr clone" rather than with
"cp" and that I don't know of a standard tool to do that for you (so
you need to setup the "to" repository by hand and manually find&copy
each branch in your "from" to your "to").
