These look properly formed and organized to me.  Gary?

I've never created a bookmark or branch from the BitBucket side, only
from the local Mercurial side.  However, with stock Mercurial you can
easily push a specified revision to a specified remote branch, and I
know you can do that in git, too, so I'd be quite surprised if
git-cinnabar can't handle it somehow.  (The mercurial command is the
expected 'hg push -r <revision> destbranch', if that is helpful.)

This *should* update the pull request automatically on the BitBucket
side, as I understand things now.  (This hasn't always been the case.)
