Quilt is, AFAIK, a unix shell script, and as such not particularly
well suited for me, since I do most of my development on Windows.

Another would-be option is the 'changeset' functionality added to
TortoiseSVN by Aniruddha Apte. Screenshots here:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2005-10/0464.shtml

The changes were never integrated into mainline TSVN for one reason or
another, it only lived as a separate build of the relevant binaries
(downloadable from the main file area, though). Users had various
issues with that, like it wouldn't link properly if you weren't using
the exact right version of TSVN against the modified TortoiseProc.exe.

Many people were probably very worried about the fact that the
solution was not officially endorsed by the core Subversion
developers, and so didn't try it / use it.

AFAIK, it's now stale, at least as far as the downloadable version
from the official TSVN site goes - it's probably still in use
privately, if I were to guess.
