Hm? git has submodule support.  You can pull to and push to a submodule.
To make this useful with regard to Emacs/AUCTeX, the Emacs part of
AUCTeX would have to be contained in a separate subdirectory.  I don't
know if Bazaar has anything akin to that.  Any kind of automatic
repository sync would require a compatible directory organization, and I
somewhat doubt that this would be easy to achieve.
