That requirements explaination is very clear. But why worry about "good
enough to commit"? The changes will be in their own tree so they won't
affect anything else. Since only diffs are being stored shouldn't be
much of a disk space issue. If files are added then they also won't
take extra space when they're copied to the trunk.

It seems storing these changes in the repository would be a perfect
place for them, no?
