You might be better served by helping John Carr with his git-serve[1]
addition to bzr-git.  That will basically serve bzr branches over the
git protocol, so you don't have the same problems with maintaining two
separate repositories.  Some code is available already[2]. This seems
a better option than either having parallel git/bzr trees or switching
entirely to git (which seems tremendously unlikely).
