really like it. The model and the philosophy seem to suit us very well.
However since there has been less uptake of Bazaar than Mercurial or Git it
seems to be less well supported in other tools like Crucible.

I too have bemoaned the lack of bazaar support in Crucible and other Atlassian
products. There is an open issue for this here:
https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/FE-725 Please do vote for it and raise its
Crucible could support your code in one of two ways:
1. bazaar-svn is fantastic. Push your bazaar code to a central subversion
repository and have Crucible watch the bazaar repository.
2. Crucible can watch a filesystem instead of a source control repository. Have
it watch the central folder where you push your bazaar commits to. I hvaen't
done this one specifically, but its worth a shot.
