That's a completely different subject: from what I understand, microbranches
are useful for resolving conflicts during a commit, which implies that you
already have commit access.

You are talking about remote repositories, where you create your own
repository down-stream from the "official" repository, and the two
repositories can merge change-sets back and forth between each other.
Subversion doesn't do this (BitKeeper does), but it might some day.

I do claim that creating branches in Subversion is "very easy", but I never
made any claims that you can create your own branch without write access.
That's an issue that has already been discussed on this list and will be
raised again in the future. CVS can't do it, and Subversion won't either for
the time being. For now, use "svn diff | mail".
