You are in the right place.  It appears that the latest version of
bzr-keywords from launchpad (revision 20) uses
bzrlib.filters.filter_stack_registry which was added to bzrlib.filters
after version 2.5.0.  If you need to use Bazaar version 2.5.0, then
you should use revision 19 of the bzr-keywords plugin.

If you remind me where you are installing your plugins from, I can
tell you exactly how to get that revision.  (It may be as simple as
"bzr revert -r 19" if you have a branch of the bzr-keywords plugin.)
If you are getting this plugin from the same PPA where you got
bzr-2.5.0, then this is a bug with the inconsistent versions in the
PPA and you should file a bug report.

I have submitted a merge proposal
to improve the documentation of bzr-keywords to that effect.
