You could copy and modify the source of scripts/cvs.py (or svn.py 
or perforce.py; within your Wing installation) to write support 
for bazaar-ng.  Some of it is just changing the command lines / 
output parsing code for each command but there's usually at least 
some parsing of special files on disk (like contents of 
CVS/Entries or analogous).  The Perforce integration was actually 
done by a user and contributed back to us.

Would be nice to have a framework (or just a superclass) that 
makes it easier to fill the system-specific code in.  We just 
haven't had time to do that.

If you do write support, we'ld certainly take contributed code
and would maintain it across releases.  I'm at PyCon and there's
a talk on bazaar-ng that I'll try to attend this afternoon.
