I do this kind of thing all the time, since two hours of my daily life
are spent on trains. Committing to a temporary repos (just an import
of my working copy state as of the time I left the office) and then
replaying commits later into my real working copy using 'patch | svn
diff -rX:Y', I can do almost everything I need to do. Only place this
really hurts me is if copies and moves are needed -- but they only
very rarely are.
