  hg update -C dest-branch
  hg transplant -b source-branch revision

But I must say that using branches in hg is rather painful.  We tried
it for a while at my workplace and switched to using cloned repos for
branches (mostly).  We had several instances of bad things happening
because of the way hg handled branches, and when those things got
pushed it was often very difficult to get the repo back to a decent
state.  In my opinion git handles branches much better than hg does.
