I don't think there's any magic bullet, sadly.  Until now, I've been the
one who did the merges, so it basically means more pain for me.

One thing you can do to help me out is to label your backports as such,
by starting the commit message with "Backport:".  It won't make all
problems disappear, but it gives me a few more options for how to deal
with them (e.g.: merge up to the next non-backport, commit, then
merge the next backport(s), "bzr revert .", commit, ...;
this work particularly well if the backport-commits are contiguous).
