Yes, I think it does but I have no experience of using changesets.

Related questions: do users expect to add files to a changeset before
modifying them (much like the lock command) or is it something that
gets done after the file has been modified? Should the command that
adds files to a changeset skip unmodified files? If it doesn't skip
then what about if/when the command becomes recursive? If it does
skip then is a --force flag needed?
