Just somehow get the change you want to backport (e.g. "bzr diff .. | patch"
or "bzr merge -r NN..MM" or even by hand) and commit it.  It's that simple.
The only trick is that the commit message should include the key word
"backport" somewhere so that bzrmerge.el will know to skip it to avoid
spurious merge conflicts when we try to merge emacs-24 back into trunk.
